GM Type II P/S Pump

I'd like to switch from a Saginaw style PS pump to a newer GM type PS pump. I have the needed brackets and a V-Belt pulley. Are there any other parts needed (other than hoses) to make the newer pump work properly with my PS box (87 Chevy S-10)?

Thanks!

I am not familiar with the pump you want to use but in my experience, it will work fine. Virtually any pump will work with any gear since all they are is a hydraulic pump and hydraulic cylinder. There are minor considerations occasionally like it is nice to use a pressure regulating valve in a GM pump when used on a Mustang II gear. However since you are going GM to GM I am sure they will trade straight across, no problem.

Thanks Willys36.

The newer pump Im speaking of is the type with a remote reservoir vs the older ones with the reservoir built onto the pump. Most of the newer pumps are used with rack and pinion steering. Im not experienced in the pressure requirements of rack and pinion vs. a steering box.

My 86, S10 has a remote reservoir w/steering box. This is an original GM set-up.

Hope this helps.
