Vane pump pulley - replacement needed

Recommended Posts


My steering servo gave up in my 1993 LS400 and when the mechanic took it apart he found that the vane pump pulley is bent. Unfortunately this part has been discontinued. Does anyone has recommendation where to get one? The actual part number is 44311-50010.

They say it doesn't fit '93 MY.  Probably not available etiher.

Question:  How the heck did the pulley get bent?  In correct removal proceedure?

At this point, I'd just buy the entire used pump with the pulley (time sensitive link), remove the pulley and pitch the pump.:|Make%3ALexus&hash=item3675807b1d:g:e~cAAOSwlYtgLS8a

Good deal and you're welcome.  If you have the space, keep the pump.  You can use the pump as a rebuildable core down the road.

Parts are getting to be an issue with our older cars.  I need 2nd gear synchro rings for my old Legend but they've been discontinued from Honda and no one has them.  This morning, I lucked out found a NOS 2nd gear gear set on ebay that had the synchros.

      My 2003 RX 300 died yesterday. I live in a isolated area so am trying to assess. Can someone please identify the broken part. There seem to be two of them in the front.

      My 2003 RX 300 made a bad noise yesterday. I live in an isolated area. Can someone please identify the broken part so l can try to find a replacement part? There appear to be two of these fans, located behind the front grill. The broken one is in the passenger side. Thank you.

      A very pleasant and blessed Sabbath, I am new here. Can someone, please, give me a simple and complete list of ALL the parts that I need for a full tuneup on my 1994 Lexus SC 400? 
      I went to two different parts stores. AutoZone did not listen to me when I told them what vehicle I have and gave me wrong parts. O'Reilly's did not give me everything I need, even though I specifically asked repeatedly for EVERYTHING I would need. 
      I am frustrated at having to keep going back and forth and I need my car fixed. 
      Thanks so much!😥

      I recently had to buy a replacement part.  I checked online for the part number and prices at to make sure I was getting the correct part--and second, to have an idea about what the MSRP was.  My local dealer, Rockville Lexus (Rockville, MD) offered to sell me the part for $65 OVER MSRP.  You read it correctly--sixty-five dollars over MSRP.  I wrote a letter to the company president.  I never heard back from him, either.  Maybe I'm old-fashioned in expecting a letter--US Postal type--to be responded to within 30 days, but...I don't think so. 
      I hope not all Lexus dealers are grossly over-charging their retail clients for parts, but apparently ROCKVILLE LEXUS, in ROCKVILLE, MD does.  Like Sy Syms used to say "an educated customer is our best customer."  Make sure you know the MSRP before putting your money down, and hopefully not overpaying for parts like you would if you bought at the rip-off artists at ROCKVILLE LEXUS.
      I bought the part I needed from LEXUS PARTS NOW ( for about cost.  Significantly below MSRP.

      Hi everyone,
      My 1999 Gs (179k) makes this creaking noise when I am turning at low speeds or if I am braking at really low speed like while backing up. It’s also kind of unpredictable. Sometimes it won’t happen, and it’ll go away and then the next time I make the same turn it will happen.  I doesn’t really affect performance at higher speed although above 60 MPH i experience quite a bit of play. 
      my Mechanic said I need a full control arm swap and quoted me $1900 for OEM parts. He also said it’s not gonna fall apart anytime soon, but to replace it depending on how much I love the car. (I love her a lot, hence this post) However, I have been reading online a lot about how it could just be one ball joint, so I’m thinking about getting a second opinion. I am also wondering if anyone has any input on whether or not swapping the control arms, all 6 of them, would help reduce the amount of steering play I have. 
      Any thoughts on doing aftermarket control arms? Has anyone had a similar experience?
      I appreciate any responses:)

      Have any you guys had a problem with the Rack&Pinion?
      I went to the car service around my house(Knoxville, TN). They told me mine is leaking and needs to be changed. 
      I'm having a hard time deciding to change or not because it cost like 1500$
      Do any of you have recommendations or any other place I should have service?
