If your pump is breaking shafts check the alignment of the pulley with the engine drive pulley. You might have a mounting bracket or bolt causing misalignment. I have seen people place washers under a bracket to make a long bolt work rather than get the proper bolt. A slight misalignment will cause torque on a shaft sufficient to break it.

Thanks. The alignment is right on. Checked it.

Everything appears to be normal.

New pump core is from NAPA, so now I have a place to at least get a rebuild kit. I should be on the road in 20 minutes.

Good luck Rusty.

I'm curious, can it be steered without the PS or is it beyond human strength???

I took pains to bleed the system thoroughly before leaving Conyers, and everything has gone well for the 300 miles since the repair.

I had a nice stay at FDR State Park with the Cagles and the Good Sam group of which Nick is the Wagonmaster. I finally arrived around 3:15 PM Friday.

Last night we did Fantasy in Lights; very nice.

I'm now at DAV; Mr. Septic, Jr., is supposed to put in the system tomorrow. Leave Tuesday for home, then prep for the Hillsborough GTG.
