first and then install the kit in yours. That way if all else fails you have a source for one.

They said there is an infrequently ordered rebuild kit, and he has now clue what it consists of $61. New P/S pump $461. Yowza. I am a patient perfectionist when it comes to detailed stuff like this. Do you think I should get the rebuild kit and a new belt, or search the yards for a pump? I hate leaks, and this one is slowly leaking all over the front of the engine bay!

Thanks again!
