Power Steering Pumps... 2 in 2 days
Alright I got a 2000 F350 7.3L 250000 on body and frame 80000 on motor.
I changed the P/S pump yesterday because it was whining pretty loud and I had some hard spots in the steering. Later that same night the whining and hard spots came back. Then when I was backing into my parking spot at work this morning I blew the hydroboost (pressure line) out of the pump (nut remained in pump the line blew out). I put a new pump and line on this afternoon and its whining and has hard spots again.
I do have 38x15.50s on with a stock P/S pump.
Has anyone else experienced this before and if so what was the fix?
Does anyone know if anyone makes a heavier duty pump and where to get them and pricing if you know it?
