poconos pa mechanic?

So the other day I swapped a Saginaw.pump in New steering gears in and a hydro boost unit. Ran it for a few days and then went to pa on vacation with the family. On the way it sounds like the Saginaw pump is going down the tubes. Anyone have any recommendations on a mechanic in the area that won't kill me$ wise? Most of my tools are home and I'll I've got is my little set and since I've got the family I don't want to take time away from them.

Thanks a ton

first thing I would do is check to see if it's topped off. Turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times and add fluid as needed. you might have some air trapped in there.

Hey jermil fluid is full and I've turned it lock to lock well over twenty times already. No air coming up into the reservoir. Any other idea?

That's all I got. Not like you could have reversed the lines, so you may have a bum pump..what kind of sound is it making?

if it was an old used pump...the possibility could always be that it was shot...even though the pump is better then the stock ones we are offered on our broncs doesn't mean it doesn't wear out...everything eventually gets put out to pasture.

We had a problem with the one we were putting in and replaced it with a cardone remanned. only thing i could get at that time. sounded like low fluid but its full. Its a really loud whine when turning and when going above an idle.

but im back home now and will be pulling it this week and replacing it.

thanks aton guys
