I dont know who or where to ask this question, but I'm hoping there's someone here who's got some hands on knowledge and can help.

I'm working on some plans for a hydraulic CEB press. I feel my plans are well laid out and I've actually started gathering parts to put it together. I found a cylinder on craigslist that's 5 inches diameter with 17 inches of travel. I'll be using a 5.5 hp Briggs engine to power it. My problem comes from sourcing a pump. I've read around on the net and learned that a power steering pump from a car will do the trick. I've even read that I could use one from a good sized truck like a school bus.

The problem I'm having is finding reliable info on how much hp it takes to turn one of these P/S pumps, how much pressure they will reliably build, and how much pressure I can get from the hydraulic ram before I stall the engine.

If anyone can help point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it
