matts37chev Looks like you got yous fixed up perfectly.

Mine was sitting at a funny angle in the bracket.
I thought maybe the holes in the bracket were to big or egg shaped from wearing funny.
But they all look ok, so it will take some extra poking at stuff to figure out.

In this pic you can see the water pump sticks out too far, and if you look between the two, you can just see the top of the p/s pulley sitting at an angle.

[QUOTE Now I am going to start really working out the p/s issue.
Pump needs modified for lower pressure and volume, plus it was at an angle in the bracket cause more belt misalignment.

I don't know how the belt stayed on it ?!?[/QUOTE]

my power steering pump was well out of alignment.it took a 6mm spacer behind the pump and bracket to align the pulleys.it also needed a spacer between the pump and bracket where you adjust the belt tension.that meant a longer stud loctighted in place so i could use a locknut.where the bracket bolted to the engine mount i filed the slot a little to give me more adjustment

new pulley ,belt ,hoses ,seals ,paint .it was a mess starting off

I think it's going to flow and cool pretty well now, however it has an epoxy bonded core, and it is starting to lift along the edges.
It didnt seem to leak there when I pulled it out, but I'm not sure how long it will last before it starts leaking.

I also just replaced the water pump, it was leaking, had a bent shaft, and was too tall, causing the pulleys to not line up correctly.
(I think it was a corvette pump)

If this goes bad, I guess it will probably be easier to buy a new one.

So my next question is, what size tubes are in your rads?
(I assume they are only 2 rows)
