Re: '87 5kcstq PS pump

There's a pump seal kit that consists of a handful of O-rings available
from both dealer and aftermarket suppliers.  There are numerous postings
available through the Audifans archives describing the relatively simple
procedures required to replace the O rings.  If you're into it for one, you
might as well do all.
