Let me see if I can help as no Chev person has answered yet...

I believe this car came through with a Saginaw pump? It's been awhile since I was under the hood of an early Chevy... <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

  • It may be a bad pump...
  • Is the fluid level correct?
  • Have you bled the air out of the system?
  • There may be a restriction in the system...is the fluid hot after running awhile?
  • Another belt driven accessory is causing the noise...

These pumps are hard to adjust the belt tension for some and instead of either using a special tool or putting an adjusting bar where there are tabs for it, they pry on the reservoir causing leakage and funny noises as the rotor hits the reservoir or the fluid aerates as a result.

You mean a squealing noise?
  • You may not have enough tension on the drive belt...
  • The drive belt may be either old or glazed/covered with oil...
  • The drive and/or driven pulley may be glazed causing belt slippage...
