I got my shim kit from amazon
All it should cost is $2.00. Its probably going to be a padded mailer envelope and a ziploc bag inside it
I could not find the shims on amazon. Got a link?
Just punch in 899001
Tuff Stuff 850PSI VALVE Power Steering Low Pressure Valve, Saginaw I used this one with my Borgeson modern box.
speedway says it wont fit the older pumps
How old? Mines a 1974
Not sure i asked for a 1969
I just tried this on my Saginaw pump in my 69 Dart. The P/S in it was waay to easy. Took the valve out and it had .055 shim in it. So I had a couple extra valves ans wound up increasing the shim stack to .069. It is still way to easy. So I guess I'll up it to about .100. We will see
You can go as far as .125" I believe Jeff
Well today I upped the shim stack to .093. Still seems to turn to easy. But as soon as it stops raining, I'm going to take it for a drive before I shim it any more.
Anyone try this with a mid 70s saginaw pump
That is what I'm using on my Dart, a later 70's pump. I eventually went up to .092. but it still way to easy.
Just ordered the 899001 kit on Amazon prime. $18, free shipping. Great tip!
in looking to make sure I'm ordering the right kit by properly identifying my pump on this 72 duster /6. this is a Saginaw style? the p/s lines all go to back of pump.
Yep, the Saginaw pump has the ham can (oval) filler neck. There is some sources that say that the slant six pumps already have the lower pressure pumps. You might research that.
Yes, slant 6 pumps are a lower pressure
This thing is super light drive. I think that a little shimming could help. All the characteristics spoken about on this topic are consistent with my new purchase. Drives and stops straight, but one false move at speed will have you considering weather you have your turn signal on. Is the 899001 kit spoken of in post #54? Im admittedly a bit confused when the conversation switches from borgeson to saginaw to federal. Seems like borgeson is the same as saginaw? Thanks for the help!
I shined my Saginaw from .055 to .092 with very little difference in steering ?
I shimmed my Saginaw from .055 to .092 with very little difference in the ride. Still to easy.
I didn’t get the improvement I thought I would either. Can you shim more?
what about a bigger pulley? slow the pump? sorry if this has been covered.
I think you can shim up to .100-.110.
