Hello XJ

I am no expert on something as old as 82 but heres my .02's worth. Diesels developed no vacuum (no throttle plate) and thus could not use a vacuum brake booster. Your truck has what is called a Hydrobooster and it uses power steering hydraulic assist for the brakes. Because you are losing p/s you are also loosing assist. I am not sure but you could switch to a vacuum booster if you use a 350 p/s pump this might solve the p/s
problem. Hope this helps.
