Does anyone have pics of an A2 power steering pump installed on a 1.6D or TD
engine? I'm curious how it looks, and the belt arrangement. Does the PS belt run off
the crank on its own?
I got the pump supposedly from a 92 Jetta, but am missing the "front bracket"
according to bentley. It appears this bracket fits over the water pump housing and
alternator bracket, so I assume longer bolts are needed. I think I've figured out how it
goes on. The rear bracket (which I have) bolts to two extra ears just outside of the oil
pan on the bottom of the block. One problem - the end most ear broke off when the
shop was tanking the block. Is this a problem or is there enough support for the
pump on the other bolts?
This is to go on my '86 1.6TD Jetta engine, but to be installed in my '88 Westy. It
appears that it should fit, although I haven't checked if the pressure line from the
pump matches the Vanagon one.
