Why is it that a new hydraulic pump for my 202 is $317 and a new Cessna type power steering pump is $527?

It just doesn't make sense.

It's all supply vs demand, especially if it has the Continental gas engine. Those PS pumps are stupid expensive, if you tractor has external hydraulics it would be better to tap into that. Surpluscenter would be the ones to talk to if you go that route to get the right parts to make it work.

No it isn't. Every business wants their inventory to turn over regularly.

Letting the dust settle onto the box isn't cheap LOL.

My best guess is that the older the equipment, the less of them that are still running therefore the less need for parts. When they are making huge runs of them it's cheaper. Once these machines were 20-30 years old, some were probably worn out and not repaired so the need for parts dropped. Not sure if what's available nowadays is new old stock or a fresh run of 'em. If it's a fresh run and they made a smaller quantity that could explain the pricing.
Or the dart board is probably just as likely!

Maybe the longer a part sits on a shelf, the higher the price goes.

I've always thought companies sometimes use a dart board when pricing parts...

Fixing some things really has a way of bringing out any weak points!

Thanks for the info. I did kind of like you. I replaced the leaking drive gear seal in my PS pump. Re-installed the pump and quickly blew that seal on the steering shaft. That new steering shaft seal is still working like it should. It didn't take a whole lot of pounding to get that speedy sleeve on but it was enough that I figured that it wasn't going to come loose.

Supply and demand? I have often wondered the same thing and have adapted other pumps to work where necessary. Not sure how you'd mount a different power steering pump, might have to have a machine shop for that one.
Speaking of power steering, I successfully changed the seal for my 204 steering shaft.......then quickly blew a hose! All is good now though, working as it should. I had no better luck than you in removing the old seal, I ended up "squishing" it down to make it smaller and removing it that way. It did come out in one piece.
The sleeve pretty much fell right onto the shaft with no effort so I didn't have to pound it on. I used some JB Weld to fill any gaps. Seems to be working well.
