Ford Explorer Power Steering Pump Kit For 5.0L Short Front Runner
The 1996-2001 5.0L Ford Explorer motors have become a common swap component for many vehicles, including older Ford Broncos. Although this is a great power plant, the OEM power steering pump is well known to fail prematurely and not be able to accomodate power steering systems with larger tires.
This Power Steering Pump Kit replaces the Ford steering pump with our High-Performance Saginaw CB pump that has been modified with ported housing, chromoly shaft, and full needle bearing complement. This kit comes with a CNC’d pump adaptor bracket that will bolt to the OEM bracket and accept our steering pump.
Also included is our proprietary design 3.5” x 6” reservoir with a custom side outlet. Our power steering reservoir uses a unique design to keep the fluid perfectly still. This results in zero cavitation and reduces air in the system, which keeps operating temperatures lower and results in a longer pump life. Our pressurized reservoir also keeps oil in and dirt out.
Our kit comes complete with all necessary hoses, fittings, and mounting hardware.
It is available in both Hydroboost and Non-Hydroboost configurations. The Hydroboost option adds a second return fitting to the reservoir and comes with all the additional fittings and hoses needed to power the steering system.
We do recommend adding our 6GPM in-line filter when doing the install to even better protect your system. If you are adding a filter, you can choose barbed fittings for easy installation or -6 AN if you’d like.
It is HIGHLY recommended to use our specialty formulated Lee Power Steering Fluid.
AC Delco or Valvoline non synthetic power steering fluid will work as a second choice but do not have the same Wear and Anti-Foaming additives our fluid has.
DO NOT USE ATF OR ANY TYPE OF SYNTHETIC FLUID.
