My pump is going out yet again. The only thing that is slowing the leaking is the mud. Now from a buddy of mine, I've heard you can put a GM pump on our truck, not the S10 ones though. Apparently a company in Colorado makes a bracket for our engine that allows us to put on a new GM PS Pump, one that holds it own fluid. Somebody brought it up on a forum online but I can't find it. Anybody else hear this or know of this?

Thanks

Here's a write-up I found. http://www.landroversonly.com/forums/f40/power-steering-pump-conversion-52582/.
Unless you found a new one, it seems like these conversions are more aimed at D1's. If you read the whole thread it seems that it is more trouble than it's worth.
Where are you getting your ps pumps? My wife's D2 went 165k on a original pump before we sold it and my D2 is on it's original pump at 145k and still going strong. Unless your getting cheap re-mans from the usual places, longevity depends a lot on fluid changes/choices.
I would go OEM with a good warranty.

Thanks for the link. I'll look into it. No mine was just a OEM one but I put a new gasket on it. Lasted maybe a year. I just don't want to spend a good amount of money on a pump and have it go out within the year.
