valve in power steering pump

On my 67 vert I've got a early GM steering pump (year unknown) hooked up to an 85 IROC steering box and understand the valve has to be changed to a valve that will allow higher pressure i.e. 1200-1400psi. The pump I was told may have been upgraded but it's not for sure. Is there a way to tell which valve I have?
Any help is appreciated.

Steve

Re: valve in power steering pump

Here's my web page on pump mods. You can check your orifice against the specs on my page. Also look at the spacers on the pressure valve behind the "nut". Late model pumps have the same thing but the nut is held in place by Loctite instead of washers. To get near max pressure you want only one or no spacers on there.

Re: valve in power steering pump

Thanks David, that's exactly what I was looking for.
I'll read the complete article and see which set-up I have and modify accordingly.
Thanks again,
Steve
