In the picture above, the piece on the right with the groove at the top....

Take two wrenches and take it apart. Inside, you will find a ball bearing and a spring. This regulates the bypass pressure of the pump. When pressure increases it pushes on the ball, compressing the spring and allowing fluid to bypass the pump vanes. I made a shim the same diameter as the spring, and about .070" thick, and put it in the bottom of the hole the spring goes in. At the opposite end as the ball.

Sorry, I don't have any pics, but if you have trouble, let me know, I'll try to explain better.
