Folks,

I sent my variable assist steering pump to Cardone through Rock Auto to be rebuilt. It came back with the "fitting, Variable effort steering discharge" 75 degrees clockwise off. The opening is almost touching the AC Compressor. I sent Rock auto with the info and probably not get back a reply until Monday.

Is there a way to change the angle to the correct angle?


Thanks

I should have replied here, see my reply in the other thread.

I did want to add, though, if you can wait I'd call Cardone and see what they say. I'm pretty sure you can just rotate the fitting though.

Mike,

The fitting is tightened to 46 foot pounds of torque. It would need to be partially unscrewed to be able to rotate the fitting.

Thanks

Yes! What will the outcome be?

I remembered I got a pump from Fred a while ago that fedex bashed up and broke the solenoid connector on, so it's already broken. And yes, the thing is supposed to be on there pretty tight it seems. I recall the original pump on my car that the fitting would swivel, but it was probably loose. That pump was in a rather sad state overall. Anyway I did take that part of it apart to see what makes it chooch. It's a pretty big hex fitting, 30mm or so. I would ask Cardone but I don't see much reason why you couldn't loosen it, move it, and then re-tighten it.
