    I have a leak in the steering/break pump. It's going through a lot of steering fluid and continually leaking. Was told to replace the pump. I was wondering how hard this is to do/if anyone else has had this problem. Thanks

    Remove lines, unbolt and remove master, remove brake pedal including the PITA clip that holds the brake rod on. 4 bolts from the inside hold it to the firewall.
    Install reverse except, install the brake rod first outside to make sure it's the same length. (Match up the new to old)
    Fill p/s run truck, pump brakes, lightly turn wheel, fill p/s again. Repeat till pump stops whining

    check the hoses for leaks first, they will leak at the fitting where crimped. Had the same problem, but had the shop do mine, major pain in the butt even for the experienced.
