    My old power steering pump has a mounting bolt that is seized up. Curious about hardware replacements. . I have a new replacement pump(to the right in the photo). My old pump is pretty corroded

    Figure I can replace old rusty ones with new and standard sizing.

    Tips on where to find good replacement hardware sets?

    ooooh yeah! lol
    those things are a bitch
    not as bad as the delete plugs though.
    should come out with a big enough braker bar and a good fitting socket....

    Okay so I got all the bolts off except for the last fitting that is located on the rear of the ps pump. it is pictured on the bottom left side of the photo. Should I heat to remove. PB blaster has not done anything to break the bond. What is that bolt called??? It seams to have a one inch thread on each side and a nut in the middle. This is the thread that locks the pump in place with a nut on the other side

    First project finished. No more binding and squeeling when I turn the wheel. There was some major sediment buildup in the lines. Thankfully the steering gearbox seems intact.
