Where to get old Meyer full Hydraulic pump

    The pump on my old Meyer full hydraulic setup is on its way out... quickly, I doubt it will be able to work for the next storm (possibly in a few days), so I NEED a replacement, and quick. According to everyone I talk to, including my Meyer rep, there is basically nothing as far as parts support is concerned for these old setups.
    As far as we can tell, this is basically just a power steering pump with a remote reservoir instead of an on-board one. It has the exact same shaft as the PS pump on my Jeep.
    I have no idea where to get a pump like this, but I'm sure they are out there. I've heard some older corvettes had a similar pump, does anyone know?
    If I could go to the junk yard or parts store and say "I need a power steering pump for _____" that would help a lot.
    If anyone knows the manufacturer of the pump or a similar pump and where to get it, that would be great too. Any leads would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jer

    Go to a place that workd on hydraulic pumps for equipment, or go to an old auto parts store and see if they can match it up. Not a parts america type store the counter guys only know whats in the computer. Another option is to chang over to the fisher style pump under the hood electric.

    The old corvettes and the old chevy novas used the same steering set up.

    Hey Grip Truk, if you want to take a ride to SI I have a Meyer pump someone gave me. I don't know if it works but you can have it.

    need a hyrdraulic Myers?

    Call Monarch Road Machinery in Grand Rapids Michigan. Their pumps were made for Myers.

    Almost all Jeeps came with their pumps, either a pump with integral tank like the Monarch Hy-Lo, or a separate tank and a belt driven pump that mounted to the engine head.

    Wow, that's really nice of you SIPlowguy, I hate to do that, but it looks like we might get a storm on monday, and I can't just not plow, I have contracts!
    I was planning on going somewhere in Yorktown or something saturday (today) so I might be able to re-route myself.

    I'd like to stick with the old fasioned full hydro for nostalgia's sake, but if this doesn't take care of the problem I may have to find myself an E-47 or something.

    SI, I sent you a PM with my e-mail, if you don't get it, please post here.

    Thanks, Jer
