Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this thread, hwy61's thread and RP31's part list which is exactly what I purchased. Finished my rebuild this weekend and the steering is PERFECT again.

It wasn't easy especially with the bolt above rusted to the bracket but it was well worth it. When I got the pump open it was clear as day it was leaking through the 037 o-ring. There was fluid all around the outside of the ring. The ring itself was flat, square and as hard as plastic. ALL the rings were like this. I'm surprised these OEM pumps hold any pressure at all.

Once I worked the air out it felt like the car I originally drove off the lot. It was that big of a difference. Thanks everyone!
