Some people who rebuild Mustang and early Ford Thompson-style pumps, only do a "re-seal" of the pump, and do not fully disassemble the pump or rebuild the cam pack. We always completely disassemble and inspect each pump and every cam pack gets a rebuild with eight new slipper springs.
Some rebuilders simply spray-bomb the pump with a black rebuilders paint. We always paint our rebuilds with the correct color and finish you specify.
Some rebuilders let their pumps go out producing a low level of pressure. Our pumps must meet a minimum test of 600psi at low speed to pass.
Some rebuilders have only a 30-day or 90-day warranty on their pumps. We have a full One Year Warranty.
Power steering pumps have often been replaced over the years and so many cars no longer have the correct style pump canister on them. One problem of this is the return hose nipple often does not point in the right direction to properly fit to the return hose. For example, many 1965-1969 Mustang pumps now have a canister that points the return hose nipple upward or towards the fender, whereas the nipple originally pointed more downward. Many people find that when they try to install the return hose that the hose is too short or kinks because the hose has to stretch to slide onto the nipple.
When we rebuild your pump, if the return hose nipple is supposed to be pointing downward for a correct connection to the return hose, we will "re-clock" the return hose nipple to the correct position at no extra charge. If the return hose nipple is bent, we will straighten it, and if it needs re-soldering, we will do so at no extra charge.
We try to repair any small damage to the pump canister. We repair the edge lip, straighten the holes for the pressure fitting and support stud, and hammer out some of the dents and dimples. We can often straighten bent filler necks. However, we are not "bodymen". We cannot repair major or critically placed dents in the canister. If you want a smooth, straight canister - send us an acceptable core for rebuild.
If you do not have the special tools required to remove and replace the pulley, just send the pump in with the pulley still mounted. We will properly remove the pulley, clean, blast and paint to the correct semi-flat black, and reinstall onto the pump, at no extra charge.
If you send in the pump mounting brackets, bolts, nuts or dipstick, we will clean, blast and paint them the correct color at no extra charge.
