Sounds like you got it going your way. Power steering pump WAS stock that came on the Vortec. Can't really remember what happened to it. A friend up here had one from.....Just went blank...... Can't remember the name of the outfit, but they pretty much do steering only. It needed a pulley cause he wanted the aluminum special sized pulley for his show car. Long story short. HP pump that doesn't have lid. It is threaded so you can put a fitting to gravity feed fluid from the resevoir. It has a stock size pulley, works good but not great. I'm pretty good with a grinder but I have some PLASMA cutting to do with my new toy. Then have to add bushings to my 4 links. Good Luck.
