Just took mine down to a machine shop. Complete rebuild and shaft straightening ran me $350. Now it works so well it blew out my thirty some odd year old seals in the steering rack.
Ain’t this fun.
Go figure.

That’s not good, this is something to think about before I have
mine rebuilt. What brand & type of pump was on your car a little
leak may not be bad, thanks for the heads up.

thanks

How did they increase the flow pressure from the pump, if they
did? I have never had my steering pump apart on my 69E and have
no literature of it, was wondering if there is some control
valve inside.

                                 Curious,

The bearings were all shot, and the shaft flopped around in there. Seals were shot too.

I can’t answer you specifically but can tell you that the
pump on the S2 XKE was unique. It has a remote reservoir, as
did the S-Type, but the pumps were quite different. Jaguar
used a different pump with integrated reservoir on the XJ6,
V12 etc.
