Re: 350 Power Steering Belt/Pump Please Help!
Good morning. I have a 1971 Chevelle with a "rebuilt" 350 Vortec Engine from an 87 S10 truck... The power steering belt literally sits atop the power steering pump causing friction. Needless to say two belts have popped. When they rebuilt the motor is it possible that they put the power steering pump in the wrong place or perhaps the engine bay is narrower than the S10 so they moved it closer? How can I remedy this problem. I am open to all solutions.
If you have enough adjustment, maybe a longer belt will help move some of the accessories out of the way ?
