Vivace We just did this on my son's BMW E30 steering pump. They mostly came with ZF pumps, and factory kits are still available. Ours of course is a Vickers, and there are zero parts listed anywhere. So I went to my local industrial supply district and found bearing, seal, and hydraulics companies. A few dollars of metric o-rings and seals and we were done!

paulsle Thanks Greg for that summary of the needed o-rings and seal.
Looks like I'll have to re-order the small o-rings, since this morning I sent for 10mm instead of the 9mm's!

GregSef I've resealed a few pumps.

Use these parts
Steering pump O rings 9mm x 2.0mm 6 pieces
Steering pump big O ring 37mm x 2mm (#9263K659) 1
Steering pump shaft seal (CRW1R) 16mm x 28mm x 7mm CR 1

I purchased the O-rings from McMaster and the shaft seal from any power transmission company that sells CR seals.

paulsle Very helpful, thanks. Plenty of hydraulic repair shops in the area so my plan is to gather seals/o-rings, rebuild a known good pump, then swap out the pumps.

75Tickspark Recently rebuild the pump.

Remove the pulley, remove the mounting bracket, split the pump by removing the two long bolts/screws.

You need a seal for the shaft, two big o rings and 6 smaller o rings.
Simply take the pump to any hydraulic shop and they should have that stuff in stock, its maybe 5 dollars worth of material.

paulsle Any update regarding the availability of a Verde PS pump rebuild kit?
Have just successfully reinstalled my PS Rack rebuilt by Jorgen automotive, I now find the pump is leaking a bit more than I should ignore.

Best thread with guidance for pump rebuilding?

Thanks,

It's really easy to rebuild, the tricky part was just finding the right size o-rings and shaft seal. Mine worked great for years after I replaced the seals.
In my example above the difference in pump price is over $300 so it was worth a little fabrication work to install a different readily available pump. It doesnít sound like thatís the case with the Milano. Mine never leaked at the pump, just at the rack.

NMMilano Im wondering how much it matters what pump you use. If one could determine out put flow rates it seems any pump should work.
A different beast, but on my Landcruiser I installed a Saginaw pump off a Volvo 240 because Toyota pumps are getting very expensive and rebuilt ones are prone to failure. I know, quite a few differences in steering systems between that and the Milano, but the theory remains the same.
A word of caution when you are rebuilding a pump. The reason the Toyota rebuilt ones fail is because although the seals are replaced the wear is actually in the shaft and rebuilders have no way of repairing that so it doesn’t take long for the new seals to wear.
Not sure what the failure point is on Milano pumps.

Nope, I just looked at some pictures. It's neither of those. I have seen that thing somewhere!
