I have been told by pump rebuilders that the out put of a Chrysler Power Steering pump was around 1000PSI. It is hard to get specs out of the manufactures. About the only way to get reliable information is to do it yourself. Are you having a blowing seal issue or ?
You could always fab up a pressure relief system>

Wondering if anyone has a spare hatch. Would save having to make one. I think they were all made the same. It is for a 1959 wide guage. thanks.

One thing that is often overlooked is the timing of the distributor, when it is too advanced, you will find it lacks in throttle response and tend to overheat very often. Once timed right the throttle response will improve and you will notice the overheat would be somewhat solved. If you still overheat then it would be a cooling problem. Hope this helps you and others just for information.

Hello all,

For those with factory power steering bombardiers, do you guys know the pressure setting is at for the cylinder up front? My 75 bomber had a different pump installed and seems to be too much pressure for the cylinder and want to lower the pressure of the pump to work properly

The Parking brake drum was used by Chrysler in the early 60's ( 60-63)just before the "P" was developed where they locked the transmission internally for parking.
. I have that early arrangement and I wished I had gone to the next generation 727. The simple reason is that the drum brake will require adjustment while in service. You also have to fabricate the floor with a hump for that drum.

There are plus's and negatives. AT least the drum brake gives the operator a foot brake and an Emergency brake option.

With the 727 fitted to an early machine one would have to fabricate a braking system which I don't think would be hard.

Hi Guys,
Just catching up on this subject and very excellent replies. If you are feeling that much vibration that you are feeling it at low RPM's I would suspect an installation problem just like what has already been mentioned, part in compatibility, alignment, worn pilot hole (which I have seen ) or worn out parts. Its difficult to analyse and work through through it! Been there myself1
