    well for a couple of days now my motor has made a vibrating at idle. its a new motor with a mild cam in it. i shrugged it off thinking its just he cam. today comign home from work and schoool. i started makeing that wonderful ps pump whine. i think great im low on fluid. by the time i get home theres smoke, and NO power steering. i park at my shop pop the hood leave it. eat dinner come back and actually lookat it. there is a perfect circle on my fenders, hood, and front of the motor where the fluid squireted out the front seal onto the pulley and was slung everywhere:D that was REAL fun pulling outa there. in the rain and on the hot motor. and come to find out ps pumps from 88+ blazer dont work for 87- blazers:mad: argh ah well

    im done buying theese from discount this pump was 2 weeks old. my friends car we put 4 on before we had one that didnt leak, actually worked, and didnt whine! From now on its central or napa

    If it is just a leak get the seal kit for $10 and rebuild it. It takes aboot 1 hour with ripout and reinstall. I did it to mine and it works great.:D

    Just make sure your using the pulley installer and not just driving/pressing it on the shaft.. PS pumps are real finnicky about that...

    I tell people all the time that it doesn't matter if it has a lifetime warranty just go buy a quality pump and pay a little more and USUALLY have no headaches. Sure it's nice to get another replacement pump if and when it fails but how many times to do you want to keep changing the pump.
