    Hi Dan, I have a couple questions for you regarding the power steering pump on my 68.

    How do you tell the difference between an Eaton Pump and a Thompson pump? I understand the Eatons were painted black and the Thompsons had the Blue/teal paint. Is this correct?

    On a 68 V8 289/302 should the hose support bracket on the back of the pump be at the top or the bottom of the pump? Mine is at the top, but the pics I have seen and the assembly manual show it at the bottom of the pump. Is mine for a different year or engine?

    Thanks David

    Hello Chock,
    My power steering is hard to turn wheels unless I rev it up, Feels like it needs more pressure? Suggestions? I'm using using Type F.
    Thanks

    Howdy... I was referred to you while asking some questions on steering boxes. I have an early '67 long shaft that I believe has gone south on me. Tag is SMB H 7E05B. Do you by chance have any for sale that would replace mine? Is there an easy-ish way to upgrade to a 16:1 ratio box? I have done the EPAS mod, so my input shaft will be cut and modified... thought about getting a '68 box with rag joints. Would have to find a shaft that I could marry to my EPAS I suppose.

    Do you happen to have a picture of the mounting plate you talk about below? I am about to get into this project and will end up with a Bendix unit so I would really like to see what this plate looks like.
    Matt




    If you do decide to get a bendix, make sure the rear mounting plate is included. These are offered both way, No Plate (cheaper), and with a Tack welded on plate.

    A Bendix booster without the plate is a door stop.

    Dan,

    Will you be around tomorrow (Weds 3 Aug) afternoon? I have a used steering box I picked up for my 66 coupe. I've torn it down and cleaned it, but would appreciate you looking at it and telling what parts need to be replaced. I'll be flying into ST Louis about 12:30 and have the afternoon free, so I can drive up to your place if you'll be home.

    Hello,

    Would you happen to know why fluid would be coming out of the filler neck/cap on my PS pump? It happens every now and then, but a couple of the guys here said you were the expert and could help. It is the stock PS setup, if that helps. Thanks!

    Good afternoon I have just switched out my tie rods and noticed that my inner tie rod on the drive side is touching my power steering hoses. The car doesn't have upper control arms yet I'm not sure if that's the issue or not. Here is a picture and help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dan. I thought I would go PM with this. (I think that the pump I bought on eBay this week may be one that you also bid on). What I am thinking of doing is keeping the innards of my current later style pump and just using the housing of the ebay pump if that is even possible. That is really my question. Do you sell the mounting brackets? Thanks, Mike

    Hi Dan, I just purchased a power steering cylinder from your ebay sales.
    Hoping to get it shipped asap. I was hoping to get it by Saturday but I couldn't get online until now. Thanks Tim (ruger)
