The Link Power Steering Pump Tester is designed for testing hydraulic automotive steering pumps.  This test stand consists of a fixture-mounting table with a universal fixture mounting plate, which allows for the mounting of a wide range of pump mounting configurations.  The drive assembly consists of a 40hp, 10,000 RPM water-cooled vector duty motor, and a fixture-mounting table.

The fixture-mounting table rides vertically on two linear slides with an air cylinder to actuate the table. A load cell is mounted between the air cylinder and the table to measure belt load so that a specific amount of belt load can be placed on the steering pump. The fixturing assembly consists of a universal mounting bracket and universal mounting plate that allow testing of a wide range of pumps.
