Power steering pump bad? or Bearing?

I've got a 81 CJ7. i recently had a cracked power steering hose so i took off the power steering belt and drove it home. Then the next day i started the jeep and it was squealing really bad. I thought once i put the power steering belt back on it'd even out the tension being pulled from the fan belt (think i tightened it to much) so i fixed the hose problem then put the power steering belt back on and it was still squealing. loosened the fan belt and the squealing stopped. BUT then when i turn the wheel it squeals and slows down the power steering pulley to a crawl. So when I think i either burned up the power steering pump or ruined the bearing on it or the bearing on the fan belt (because it was squealing even with the power steering belt off)


Don't hit kids, no seriously they have guns now.


Looking for rebuilt T-5 transmission.

Did you bleed the pump? You might have air in it. The old ham can PS pumps are actually very easy to rebuild if you'd prefer not to buy a new one.

Take all the belts off.
See how easily and smooth the alt, W'pump and P/S pump turn by hand.
