    My power steering pump on my 66GS is leaking an I would like to know the best rebuild kit to get an how hard are they to rebuild? Is there somewhere recommended that rebuilds them also in case I decide not to rebuild myself?

    I've used seal kits from Rock Auto, I think they were Gates brand. As long as the pulley comes off not a big deal. Sil glyde will things slide together and help keep new o rings in place. I Never got into replacing shaft bushings or other pump internals. If it's that far gone pick a different pump.

    I agree with the above. If you can get the pulley off in one piece, half the battle is already won.
