Hydroboost heavy steering

Mounted a powersteer and hydroboost in a pick up rod.
But when braking the car starts to steer heavy.

Are there differend pumps(with or without hyrdoboost) g.p.m. ?

Differend pulley sizes ?

Any help welcome.

Thanks
Wander.

Sometimes a larger steering wheel REALLY helps ...

Read this link. Scroll down to the pumps section. You may be able to increase the flow by drilling out the flow restricter.

If the brakes work fine when not steering and the steering works fine when not braking it is a flow problem and not a pressure problem that you have.

I don't know for sure how the hydroboost is supposed to be plumbed. Make sure you have the hoses routed correctly though.
