Question about Ford ZX2
I had this problem too. I made the upgrades like you did,
but I kept blowing seals. The solution is really simple, it
seems that if you take it to a shop they figure it out right
away. Where is all this information stored anyway?
One of the screws on the plate holding the power steering
hydraulic diverter (below the pump) needs to have a washer
between the plate and the engine. I don't remember which one
it is but I think it might be the top one. This will bring the shaft
on the priority valve (same as diverter) in line with the seat
on the pump. Without it they are not quite lined up leaving
a gap for the fluid to shoot through and blow the seal. Also,
makes it harder to get the thing together.
