      Default Maintenance and new parts

      normal maintenance isn't a problem, but replacing some parts with new one's is...i've been having problems with the power steering on my supra for the last couple of years, when i first had problems i bought what i understood to be a new pump from ebay...

      after fitting it, the power steering still didn't work on tickover...i then had the steering rack professionally rebuilt by carparts-direct.co.uk, based in mansfield...(really good service)....cost me 300,

      still it didn't work...so off with the pump again...tried a few of the pumps i have myself, but to no avail....

      so i bought a couple of seal kits thinking i could repair them myself, but the seal kits were not suitable for the 7m pumps, also after stripping down a couple of the pumps i had, i found other issues.....after removing the back plate on the pump i found scarring...so even if the seal kits were correct it wouldn't have worked..

      yes....i was getting very pi**ed off by now.....so i got in touch with carparts-direct again...spoke to a guy called Martin (very helpful guy) told him the problems i was having, he assured me the steering rack they reconditioned for me was 100% good...so i've now ordered a reconditioned pump from them, 329.....he also advised me to flush the rack/reservoir/and everything else before fitting the new pump..

      i will get there in the end...there's no short cuts guy's, these cars are getting old now, mine must be one of the newest (April 93) and that makes it nearly 26 years old...

      Considering all the effort you have gone to, and the money you have spent I would suggest you fit a temporary filter into the return line from the cooler, if you find a local hydraulics supplier they will be able to find something to do the job, the pressure and flow requirements are really low by modern hydraulics standards. All there is in a standard hydraulic steering system is a co**** strainer in the reservoir.

      Best idea I think, given the flawed nature of the PAS system, is go with the electro-hydraulic setup from the Astra that Ed Sarling is sorting on his car currently, he has promised a build thread, in due course, and the best bit is the pump is only around 30
      With this in mind, it would create a modern PAS system upgrade, which is reliable and well priced too.
      One back in daily use and undergoing cosmetic refinement, one soon to re-emerge bigger and stronger than before.

      Sounds a great idea, is there not a electro/hydraulic setup from a later toyota model? (2004 MR2 for example? i did think of trying this route) but i went for the
      more straight forward way, (and more expensive by by the sound of it )

      Not sure on a Toyota retrofit, but the Vauxhall one has right fittings, apparently, Martin has a pump coming, we will do the research, some test fitting and testing and see what happens

      There is a Toyota pump that will work bit it's a lot more expensive for the same job.
      It's from a mk3 mr2 with the 1zz engine .
      I'm running a good pump on my 7m but changing over yo the electric pump in the new year.
