[Saloon-lovers] power steering pump pressure MK IX

A friend of mine is installing a GM lump in his MK 9 (I
know, I know)

I’m wondering on his behalf if a generic GM power steering
pump can put out enough pressure to drive the Berman PS
box? Or perhaps an after market high pressure unit?–

I’m not sure what pressure the Burman box on the MkIX is
designed for, I believe the later Saloons were mostly 1000
psi, with very late S/420s 1200 psi. GM/Saginaw Vane pumps
as used on the MkX would be a good choice I should think,
then you have the bracketry and Reservoir issues solved and
know that the pump can handle the flow rate as well.

Its my understanding the early pump (Burman) is less
powerful than the later one, (in the MK10 series)

I believe that Saginaw style unit is the same as early XJ
series.

It also appears identical to those in large 1970s V8 such as
International Scouts, and Aussie GM products–

Phil,
I should have asked this in my initial reply: Was the
car originally equipped with the Hobourn-Eaton pump at the
back of the genny? If so, and the Problem is that the
original pump is worn or leaking, be aware that SNG sells
roller kits for these pumps (if left sitting dry the
rollers tend to rust). All of the other parts are Standard
bearings, O-rings and seals, so as Long as the pump housing
isn’t worn or damaged rebuilding them is very
straightforward.

Phil,

Its the other way around. The early Jaguar generator pumps
are 800 psi and GM pumps are +1200 psi. Most hot rod vendors
have aftermarket valves to reduce the pressure of GM pumps.
