Awesome sounds like we're getting closer. Is the fluid real hot inside? Stick ur finger in right after n find out. It's ok if the pump is hot as long as the fluid isn't hot enough to burn ur finger it should b fine.

Btw the pump and pulley are brand new from oreilys and I guess just to say again the gearbox was from a '96 grand Cherokee but it bolted straight up so I went with it....��

With ignition on I ran the steering through a few times and then started it up. Slight wheel jerk left but not to stops. Left on for 1 min and on turning it off I started to hear a noise hard to describe. Anyway shut it off at 1 min and noticed smoke once again coming from the pump for approx. one more min. Also the fluid while cool and clear in the res is still very hot on the outlet port of the pump. Let me know what you guys think.....

It should b hot coming out of the pump that means its working but it shouldn't b smoking. As long as it just warm in ur resevoir then its not getting too hot. Ur sayin it's smoking while running or after u shut it off?

After I shut it off but I'm assuming it either just takes that long ( a min) to get hot enough to smoke or it's smoking the whole time and I can't see it because of my fan blowing

Wondering if mayb even tho it's new it's no good, everything else is hooked up correctly. I've gotten new parts that were not so good before, water pump with a bad bearing n so on. If its smoking id prob see if they would swap it for another one. I see no reason if it is hooked up correctly that it would smoke. I've had 3 pumps go bad on me before and never ne smoke. I don't see nething else that could really be ur problem. Im sure it prob came with sum sort of a warranty and it hasn't been very long since u bought it.
