How much would you use in a PS pump, and would it be useful on my 93?
Fact is I have some leftover from a recent rear end rebuild just sitting on the shelf
yes

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
RonD will be at the get-together in Ohio. We won't see him. He will be behind a huge gold curtain and we will just hear his booming voice as he issues RBV wisdom to the masses. Then we will follow the yellow mud road back to our homes, saying, "there's no place like home. There's no place ...."

I'm really hoping this ends up being a fix, everyone wants a quieter ford p/s and yes dirtman I thought the same thing, but RonD makes a good point and I'm feeling pretty good about it. A lot of people for some reason don't like the ford rangers, I for one think that only needing about 5 different sockets to take every bolt out of this vehicle is amazing engineering, they're pretty easy to understand. Listen everybody, I just got done working on a saab 9-3 last month so everything is looking really easy to do right now

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times... use placenta for power steering fluid.

No, you want less friction in power steering pump not more

Ford power steering pumps are just noisy, Ford deals with that by installing A VOLUME KNOB on every radio they install in every vehicle, never seen a Ford radio without a volume control, now you know WHY :)

On newer models they even moved it to THE STEERING WHEEL, point made, lol
What do I do, my Ford has buttons instead of knobs? JK.

The power steering pump on my 88 F250 has been whining since 88, and so has the one on my 88 Bronco 2 I'd assume, so there's truth to the noisy power steering pumps, no wonder all the speakers in my Bronco 2 are blown, that pump must have been extremely loud at some point before it was replaced, and well the one that's been in it since I've had it whines too LOL.

I thought the "FORD PS whine" was from air being in the system. How would friction modifier help with that?

I thought it was air too. Perhaps the friction modifier changes the surface/interface tension.

I'm not sure where the air would be trapped? I bleed the system every time I add fluid
