I'm new to the forum. I have a 56 Desoto Firedome wagon I am trying to restore and have a million questions but have to start somewhere so it might as well be here. It has the Vickers power steering pump which leaks. Trying to find exactly where but wondering if anyone makes a rebuild kit for it? Or anyone who rebuilds them? Thanks for the help.

I needed a Vickers pump rebuild for my '57 DeSoto, so after looking around a little, I tried RockAuto and sure enough they listed one for $149 with a warranty. of course the core charge was $500, but the rebuilt one arrived and the core returned long before the credit card came due. They paid the return shipping and the new pump works great! No more leaks and squeaks. Their pumps are rebuilt by Lares Corporation (www.larescorp.com) in Minnesota, and they have a pretty good reputation.
