Anyone been able to get parts to rebuild an early vl 6 p/steering pump with the outlet at the front/side? slightly smaller than the saginaw used on 8's, later vl 6's, v6's etc etc
so far the parts are a bit hard to come by, been searching for a few weeks (the o-rings seals are not a major concern i can find something that will fit)
The main front bearing easy enough being a 6203
The bits that are being a pain to track down are:
The front seal, has a helical pattern for sealing, anyone know the dimension's of this one? GM part #7839589 from what i've found in cross reference listings it has imperial measurements.... doesn't seem right as the shaft measures 19mm with the varier calipers, don't see the point of removing it and destroying it before i can definitely get a replacement. And has anyone just replaced this with a standard seal and had no problems?
The rear torrignton drawn cup needle roller BH59 haven't given up finding one in surplus but has anyone found something compatible?
like a BH57 that is shorter and has a lower load rating?
Holden can't help, rebuild kit number is no longer available.
At the current point it's looking like it'll be easier to replace the bracket and high pressure line to fit the newer model pump(cheaper design) or just throw in a manual rack.

get another one... from wreck or something man.. get a newer one and replace the line
i guess u mean Vernier Caliper
If its an old style vernier maybe your reading the measurments wrong? some people who dont know how to use them read them wrong unless you got digital?not saying you dont know how to thoe but it could explain the big difrences?
yeah verniers, know how to read/use them but variers cause everyone will get a different reading if they don't use them right.
Any good hydraulic place should have a seal if you can give them the measurements and application. I have always had good success with CDR 07 3889 7822 in Brendale north of Brisbane.
They have all types of seals up to 5000PSI
Good luck with the rest
that's part of the problem, it sits behind the front bearing and is a smaller outer diameter than the bearing, no way to measure it without destroying it lol.
