Can anyone tell me what pump I have?

The car has been sitting for around 10 years without being run. Power steering reservoir is just about empty and the bottom of the pump is wet with fluid. Does anyone rebuild these?

Looks like it might be the Vickers type. I ordered a rebuilt one for my '57 Dodge through Rock Auto. They are rebuilt by Lares Corp.

When a pump like this getting bad pressure on idle when the engine is hot. No leakage.
What is it that is worn? the rebuild kits seem only to have gaskets.

My steering fluid was very bad and I am changeing it now. But could it bee anything more in the pump that is bad?

Thanks for posting that number. I was able to chase it in the 55-58 Mopar Parts Catalogue pdf and then find the 1672 697 Eaton pump that is on my 56 Dodge (driven by the back-side of the generator).

Hope I don't derail the thread. (I've posted diagrams for both my 1672 697 Eaton pump and the 1826 158 Vickers so not to mess up the thread too much).

No difference with new fluid. Still bad pressure in idle when turning the wheel and hot engine.

Could it be better if I buy a kit for the pump and change everything included?
