Other than changing pulley sizes, how can output pressure be reduced?

Using stock style 92 p/s pump 5.0L.

I also noticed different letters on the screen/relief pressure(?) piston?
Different pressures?

If you are sticking with the Ford pump, this valve may do it for you.

I'm using a Fox Mustang serpentine system, and 'fabbed a bracket that will accept a KRC pump onto the Ford serpentine brackets.

I have seen that before.
My concern is creating additional heat with that setup.

It regulates the output from pump at its as designed pressure.

i would like to modify the actual pressure valve inside the pump to control flow.

I believe it’s in these assemblies in the picture.
Appears to have more than just a screen on it.

Thanks for sharing information.
That might be an option in future.

Noticed your signature says in pieces...have you ran your setup yet?
What combination do you have for pump options?

I'm using a remote reservior and a power steering cooler, and I'm using hydro boost brakes. I'm also using a Unisteer rack and pinion. About the only concern is the KRC pump impeller. They have a specified max RPM, so I'm using a small crank pulley. With the OEM crank pulley, the power steering pump would have been over driven and that will do nothing but wear out the pump. I'm using the standard pump with the original flow valve, etc.

Nice setup. Looks great too.
I might have to throw this on my wishlist.

Thanks,
Dan
