My p/s has been leaking since I got the car.
I'm thinking of sending it to Chocko to rebuild or getting a rebuilt system he has.

I assume the consensus would be to have the one on the car rebuilt. 

I've never removed one of the p/s systems myself before.  Anything tricky or special I should know?
Will I need to get an alignment after the system is put back on?

Thanks for the help

  Unbolting the pump or removing the pump does not affect the alignment settings.
   If the leak is between the reservoir and the pump: there is an O ring that sits in an area where surface rust starts.  Messes up the seal between the two.

I need to try to study where the leak is coming from this weekend.
I've swapped out a pump before but never removed the rest of the system.
I'm pressure sure the control valve is what is leaking

Removing control valve generally means realignment.   Removing power ram or pump itself won't affect alignment.

If you are very careful about removing the valve - marking and counting threads, etc. you may get away without aligning.

Thanks.  Good to know.
The alignment shop isn't too far from my house so worst case I can always trailer there there

Power ram(where piston rod comes out of ram), pump and hoses are the typical sources of leak. Regardless of if leaking or not a rebuilt power control valve should be part of any complete overpowering rebuild. Don't forget to take out the drive pin driven into the drag link to keep the power control valve from turning on the drag link.

Thanks Bob.

Since I've never remove a system myself before I'll look for some videos before jumping in.
I've spoke to Dan and ChockoStang and will be sending the complete system up to him for a rebuild.
With the system leaking bad since I got the car it's limited me from driving it much.
