This pump and bracket is designed to fit all Toyota V6 3.0 Pickups and 4Runners from 1989-1995. This kit does not work with 3.0 Tacoma’s. This kit will not work on 4Runners with a functioning AC, because the AC cooling fan must be removed for the placement of the PS Pump cooler. Never use ATF fluid, or a semi-synthetic blend. This will void the warranty. Ok to use standard power steering fluid or a full synthetic. Royal Purple fully synthetic power steering fluid recommended.

(Note: If you have a non-ABS 3.0, please see step 4 continued at the end of these instructions.)
5. Remove Power Steering Pump: Remove the power steering pump and its main support bracket. IMPORTANT: Save lower bolt.
6. Mount Reservior Bracket: Loosen fixtured wire channel from underneath inner fender using a screwdriver to gently pry the clips through the holes.
7. Attach Bracket: Test fit bracket with reservoir attached to ensure clearance below for suction line. Mark hole locations and drill

your power steering pump straight to your power steering gearbox or IFS box.
