Default 64.5 Power Steering Pumps

Hello all,

I'm a newbie to this forum; so if this question has been asked before, please forgive me.

A little background...

I have an early 64.5 (April 15, 1964 DOB) that I've owned for 30 years. My kids are pretty much out of the house now leaving me with more time and money to do what I want for a change. I started doing research on my car and discovered that it was originally equipped with power steering. Sometime before I bought the car, the complete power steering system was removed, except for the cylinder mount bracket on the frame rail. I had always wondered what that bracket was for and when I decoded the steering box tag, I found out.

From what I've been able to piece together from articles and pictures on the Internet, I assume it should be equipped with an Eaton pump with an integral tank since I do NOT have A/C. I also know that I will need hoses, brackets, the proper drag link, tie rod ends, control valve, cylinder, bolts, nuts, etc.

I have seen pictures of both cast iron and stamped steel pump brackets for this car, but I am unsure which one is correct for my build date. I'm assuming cast iron, but not totally for sure. I'm hoping someone might have a detailed picture or two of what this setup should look like.

I'm hoping there are a few knowledgeable people out there who can provide some assistance and correct my assumptions. Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.

Any recommendations as to where obtain a "complete" PS system?

As I stated before, I've owned and driven the car for 30 years without the PS, so if the correct answer is to leave it as is and forget the PS, that's fine too.

Thanks in advance for the help and opinions.

I have a mid-April D-coder that still has all the original PS stuff. It's a driver so not pretty but I can shoot a few pix of the brackets and pump. I rebuilt the Eaton pump after buying the car 20 years ago and was pretty impressed with its simplicity and condition. It took a standard 3/4" hydraulic shaft seal that I use on hydraulic pumps in the shop and a couple of o-rings and a gasket to mount the tank. I imagine the under-car gear is similar to a 65. I've had zero trouble with the system since I've owned the car and it sat for eight years until just recently. You should be able to rob some parts off of other Ford cars of that era.

I'll try to get something up tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a web image of the exact bracket which is on my car.

Here's a suggestion that will reward you for many moons! Get Bob Mannel's book on the Small-Block Ford engine in the Mustang. I cannot describe how much very accurate, detailed information is provided in this 500 page book on questions just like you are asking.
