question for those smarter than me. I have a 62 Mercedes Unimog that I'm putting power steering in from an F250. In the engine compartment theres not a whole lot of room for a PS pump. My question is, will a pump run properly with the pulley facing inward towards the firewall? Mounting it this way, I will have plenty of room. thanks

Depends on whether or not the actual rotation of the pump being clockwise or counterclockwise effects the performance, or pumping action.

The mounting will cause a counter clockwise rotation of the pump. Opposite of normal (I think). Any ideas?

AnLT1 chevy engine uses a reverse rotation pump. Check out rock apes build of low budget pimpin. He had the same predicament since his honda engine spins backwards.
