Where can i buy a stock reservoir for a power steering pump ?

Im sick of these reservoirs from carquest and advance auto... they have cheaply made nipples and they leak crazy.. Im on my 3rd one for my 5.9 and second for the 4.0 I fixed the 4.0 using the old reservoir off my broken 5.9's pump.. So besides a junkyard where can I get a OEM reservoir ?

Why not a Dorman reservoir? That's what I have on mine, as the OEM one broke while I was working on the steering gear, and I haven't noticed any leaking. I've been quite pleased with it actually.

I bought an entire pump at a junkyard for $20 or so. Too all of 5 min to remove it. ( yeah, I cut the high pressure line after asking the guy if I could)

I wish I had an answer for that one.
I put a rebuilt pump on about 1-1/2 years ago and it's been leaking at the nipple on the reservoir. I thought it was cracked, but when I took it off it turned out that the nipple was glued on to the reservoir body, not molded in like OEM. Got one from the JY today because I couldn't find a new one for the 5.2.

I wonder if the plastic nipples on those things can be repaired with some copper tubing and JB weld....hmm..

I guess its just luck of the draw on aftermarket. I got tired of fooling with it after several pumps and resevoir combo's and sprung for the OE pump.
