4.7 power steering rebuild kit

Hey, I was wondering if any of you knew if this rebuild kit would actually work? It is only 18 bucks and I feel that that is a lot better than spending 100-300 on a brand new one. Any help would be appreciated. I have the tools to do it was just wondering if it would work.

This is the kit:

All that is is a bearing, seal, and some o-rings.

No vanes for the pump impeller.

You can try it.

As bill discovered the high pressure line o-ring can leak and cause it to look like other leaks.

check this hose and see if that's where its leaking, if so you will have to replace the hose as well

That could simply be air in the system from the leaks depending where they are.

the whining noise is because of...

A. low fluid
B. air in the system

if the hose is leaking as shown in the video you have to replace the hose, a new O ring won't fix it, I tried to just replace the O ring on mine and it didn't work, I also tried to patch it up.. but the high pressure destroyed the patch.

the only solution is a new hose. there's a link in the video description to where I bought it from
