5.2 power steering pump mounting
Today I decided to try and fix this annoying belt squeal.
It's been going on for two years and replaced with quality belt and still squeals.
I notice a couple things that don't look right.
First and foremost the aluminum bracket that mounts with 3 bolts to the head is broken in two.
Second - where the pump mounts to the aluminum bracket are 3 steel convex like spacers about 1/4" thick at each mounting point between aluminum spacer and pump, are they supposed to be there?
Third- There was 1 bolt missing from the pump to bracket mounts, it looks very difficult to access as the waterpump tube is right in the way, the bolt looks like it has very little clearance to fit, does that sound right.
Oh and lastly, I guess this bracket i need is going to be a junkyard item unless i can get a new one on line maybe somwhere?
