Need Help! 4.2 Kenne Bell Destroying My Ps

I need a solution to my 4.2 Kenne bell system to not shear off my power steering pump shaft.  Does any one make a independent  drive system for a kenne bell ??  Is the a more heavy duty PS pump that I can buy?

 

Was at track Saturday, this weekend, sheared the PS shaft off first pass grrr.  Took home replaced pump with a reman'd one, (big mistake!) went back to track Sunday and on second pass shaft sheared off again, looks like bearing on PS pump seized up causing shaft the sheared off again.

Any help would be appreciated for this issue

Here is an article with some very good tips to correct the issues you are having with PS pump.

 

you could also contact Joe Helms he might still be at Arrington. He is the person who designed mine. I have a stand alone on a KB 2.8

Thx for the much needed info !  Good to have multiple options to remedy this :)

Update on solution for those who may have similar issues.  Turn One makes a heavy duty PS pump to resolve issue.  I informed them of my issue and they said that they install a heavy duty bearing assembly and input shaft to be able to with stand the abuse of a supercharged car.  $550 for the pump and about a week for them to build.  Hopefully this will solve future pump failures.
