+1 for meridian. Be sure to get new high pressure lines, might as well.

I thought the Lucas products were more of a hail Mary solution. Heard that stop leak is a temporary fix and can clog up the rest of the system, causing more problems.

I dont know. Just what I heard.

True for transmission, not a big deal on power steering. In any event, it is just a temp solution. The flaw with the rover steering boxes is that the use a bush on the lower output which wears allowing the seal to leak. Meridian replaces with a proper bearing.

if you only have a few drops on the driveway pour some Lucas power steering stop leak in. In my case that has stopped leaks for months @ a time.

It beats bubblegum I guess, right? I'll shoot for Lucas and see where that takes me. Then I'll order Meridian. Besides, what would an English car be that didn't leak some sort of fluid somewhere after all?

Exactly! As they say: you know it's empty if it doesn't leak!
