    i have a 01 i am working on for my friend . its got a new power steering pump cause the old one rusted out the resivor. ran it for 10-15 min and blead system no leaks what so ever.

    now that he has driven the truck 15-20 miles he has a steady drip of engine oil from the adaptor area were the power steering pump bolts to the motor. i recall feeling a seal in there when checking for the index of the pump drive position.

    i have called dealer and thay say 90 bucks for a vacume pump seal/oring reman kit. is there any other was to replace this seal or do i need to reman the unit.

    and if reman is in order what is involved in this job? thanks all any help would be great.

    I just remember seeing the kit in the Geno's Catalog. Haven't done one myself. Check out turbo diesel register for more cummins info, lot of good info over there.
