Saginaw Power Steering Pump Upgrade Kit For Ford F-250/F-350 7.3 1999-2003 Models
The 1999-2003 Ford F-250/F-350 with the 7.3 motor is a great workhorse. Unfortunately, the power steering system can only handle street and light off road usage. When you use it as a tow vehicle and need to do extended periods of low speed steering (backing a trailer), or modify it to larger tires, the OEM pump falls short and will often fail.
Our Power Steering Pump Upgrade Kit replaces the stock Ford steering pump with our High-Performance Saginaw N-pump that has been modified with a ported housing, chromoly shaft, needle, and thrust bearings. This is the same pump that many of our off-road race teams are using to win the Baja 1000!
This kit also includes:
- CNC'd pump adaptor bracket that will bolt to the OEM bracket
- proprietary design 3.5” x 10” reservoir
- pressure hose
- return hose
- all necessary mounting hardware
Our reservoir uses a unique design to keep steering fluid perfectly still. This results in zero cavitation and reduces air in the system – which keeps operating temperatures lower, resulting in longer pump life. Our pressurized reservoir also keeps oil in and dirt out.
We do recommend adding our 6GPM in-line filter when doing the install to even better protect your system. If adding a filter, choose barbed fittings for easy installation. View Filter
If your vehicle has tires 37" or larger, we recommend using hydraulic ram assist. When adding a ram your pump will need higher flow. We offer this pump with a larger liner and billet end cap to handle the extra flow requirements for the ram. +$150
When using this pump kit, you MUST use the radiator hose that routes "through the serpentine belt". This is the more common hose, but some vehicles came equipped with the "around the belt" hose. If you need to change the hose, the Gates part # is: GAP22542.
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.
Easy install for someone with limited mechanical ability, resovoir still fits with by aftermarket air intake and the performance is incomparable, its like driving a different truck!
Solved my steering problem
I was having a hard time steering with 35" tires at idle. This has solved my problem. The pump does have a little wine to it, but I will take the wine over hard steering.

This thing is great. Easy to install. A little whiny at both ends, but it turns the wheels great.
Got one for my 99 f350 lifted 18 inches on 46s. Night and day difference. I can turn the wheels in park idling.
