On a personal note, please be cautious with your gaps. You can spend a lot of time trying to do better than factory then you discover what I did. When my car was painted and I moved to assembly the gap between the door and the B pillar was too tight to allow the door weatherstripping to fit. It was binding on the rubber and screw heads that hold the top of the weather strip on the tail end of the door. So at least put the weatherstrip and casters on for a check fit before paint. kcmash1 point
25 Years ago a neighbor had a horrible problem with the red headed wood peckers. I did some research for a deterrent. I found a 110v device that omitted a noise they cant stand. He bought it and NO more wood peckers. He has since moved otherwise I would give you the model #.1 point
As you live in Australia, getting parts to do a PS rebuild yourself might be quite a bit harder than on this side of the Equator plus it isn't that easy to do without some technical know-how and proper tools. So, unless there is qualified shop within a reasonable distance that has the knowledge and parts to properly rebuild a Saginaw 800 PS box, (it should be a variable in a Mach1, tag ID SPA-T or V) my suggestion would be to buy a quick ratio 12.7:1 from one of the US companies. I suggest doing some research as I can't offer an opinion as to which would be best. Most remans I've seen are all fixed ratio 17.5:1, you need a variable ratio16:1-13:1. I have not done the PS pump myself, so I can't offer anything on that score. Brake booster can be checked with a vacuum pump and the appropriate plug fitting. Pull the check valve out, install plug and apply vacuum. If it holds for say 5 mins, should be good to go. Check the check valve simply by doing the suck-blow test, you should be able to suck air in the direction of the vacuum flow, but not blow back through it. If that's all good, check your hose, if bad replace. Hope that helps. Good luck with it.1 point
I say restore. I simply repainted my power brake booster and it was fine. The ps boxes are a standard. I used Power Steering.com in Missouri and am happy. Unless you are doing something crazy with your driving, the original equipment is good to go. kcmash1 point
