Jaguar and Chevy power steering systems

My main question is this: Will a '91 Chevy van power steering pump work on a 72 Jaguar power steering box or will I somehow have to change over to the Jaguar pump?

The pump should work. Steering might have a little less or a little more "boost" is all. All power steering systems work at near the same pressure, and hoses are rated at over 200 psi. Should be no worries here! I'm running a late 80s T-bird rack off a GM pump (from a 87 Jeep Cherokee w/ 4.0L six) in my Rambler!

The Jag should have a power rack as well. Jag racks are prone to leaks, so you might want to check what pressure the Jag pump puts out and the GM (someone here may have the GM specs, search for Jag sites to find that).

Actually max pump pressure is more in the 1500psi range and the lines can handle around 3000+psi.

I suppose you can say "a pump is a pump." Bill Waddill, of Flint, stuck a friction clutch in front of an early GM automatic and used a power steering pump to provide the necessary transmission fluid pressure.
