Wedge List / off topic!
« Last post by tencate on October 02, 2017, 03:45:02 PM »
Wouldn't normally do this but perhaps someone here could use it???







My

colleague Tim Darling is heading back to the UK with his dog Quizno after

working here in the States for some 20 odd years. Parents, family, all those

sorts of reasons. Tim is a good friend and colleague, hosted my TPA TR8 in his

garage while I arranged to get it to my place.



Hebs driven his dog and a

Kia Sedona (minivan) from Reno NV to New Jersey to fly out from Newark to

London Thursday or Friday. He wanted to minimize the amount of air time for

Quizno.



He was hoping to sell the Kia to a Carmax or something when he got to

Newark and pick up a vehicle in Heathrow once he arrived. The second part went

smoothly. The first part? Not so much. Dealers think hebs a homeless guy or

derelict or something and wonbt give him the time of day, even though hebs

got clear title and all that. One dealer offered him salvage value for it but

otherwise, no one wants to touch it. Must be the accent? :-/



Anyone know

anyone in the immediate Newark area that needs/wants a used minivan OR might

be interested in flipping it?



Details: 2004 Kia Sedona EX, 113k miles, tow

hitch(!!!), he just drove it cross country, no issues with it. Blue book is

around $1300+, hebll take $500 OBO. Hebs desperate to get rid of it and is

looking to donate it if he canbt find someone to take it really really soon.

Email me and I can get you in touch with him if you care.



Back to your

regularly scheduled wedgemail.

If you are in the UK, you may want to try Stag vendors as the Stag also

used a similar pump.

That's correct, Wayne, mostly.  The pump body itself is exactly the same,

but the pressure relief valve is sized to our car and reservoir's position

and fluid inlet/outlet port positions may be unique as well.  If he as an

old pump, these last two parts can be moved over to any pump body.

In response to the fact that it is a common Saginaw steering pump and any GM

car of the period will have one.



The trouble is in UK not that many cars were fitted with power steering -

and certainly not many (if any) Vauxhall (UK GM brand) cars!

There might be some Jaguars and Rovers though.

My 1985 Jaguar XJ6 has the same pump.  Although there is a metric fastener

and an English fastener version.  My TR8 is inch and the later Jag's like

my '85 are metric.

The pump is but the reservoir is unique to JRT, as I recall.

Wedge List / Albert\'s TR8 power steering pump
« Last post by Rex Holford on October 02, 2017, 06:22:49 AM »
I spoke to Albert yesterday regarding the pump and would confirm that he has

bought a reconditioned one from Robsport in the UK. The problem now is that

the pulley required is not of the interference fit type but slide fit with

keyway and nut. Pulleys are readily available in the UK but not to the outside

diameter required. The saginsaw pump is from a Stag and will only require the

correct pressure relief spring from his old pump to complete the rebuild.

However,without the correct pulley it cannot be completed. Can anyone help?

Your comments would be appreciated.

Yes the pump is a Saginaw, they can be found at most auto parts stores in the

US. I'm pretty sure the part number is in the TWOA alternate parts list.
