1965 power steering add

Okay, here is my next hurdle. I found a complete used OEM P/S package that includes all linkage, power cylinder, control valve, pump, etc. I'll need to the high pressure hose and low pressure return hose plus pump bracket.

My question is can I use my existing steering box and pitman arm? I have a 4 speed car.
thanks

New pitman arm probably needed. Steering boxes were the same if I recall correctly. Not sure on procedure. Maybe CHOCK will pitch in here, he's the expert!

289
4 speed
Rally-Pac
Bench Seat
Power Steering
All-around discs
Aftermarket A/C

And not nearly enough time

nothing to wear out on pitman arm. if you are going from a v8 non power to power steering as Idler arm is same for ps and manual steering but can be worn out so check before updating to ps. Wes

Sorry, was looking at your signature pix and thinking '67 and not where it said "1965 Power Steering Add" in your post. The '65-66 V8 Pitman's are all alike.

Yes you can force fit that 67 Mustang centerlink and screw on valve on a 64-66. It will be a nightmare at best.
First thing go to farm store buy a Mig welder, plenty of cut off blades, then stop at corner convenience store for 3 CASES of Bud light-You'll probably need more??

You can do it--I think. Time, confusion and anguish will be the norm.

Now if picture posted is not planned unit, send pictures of 64-66 unit.

Sooo glad when I found my "deal" for my '65 GT I showed it to you first and you told me the nightmare I was getting into. Very happy I bought my power steering package from you. I would advise anyone who is a novice like me on power steering to do the same. Has everything and it works, NO hassles.

It's just WAY easier...

I have a 1966 w/ power steering that I've been hemming and hawing about converting to EPAS. It leaks from everywhere, but works very well. If you're interested, I may trade/sell you my parts in exchange for your manual parts. I would then recommend that you have me ship my parts directly to @CHOCK, who can then make it NOT leak from everywhere.(As best I can tell, the ram and the pump are leaking.) I would need @CHOCK to tell us what would need to be sent to make this all work. I would prefer to keep my steering box, since I've read it's nearly impossible to get out of a V8 car with the engine still in it.

(edit If I could afford the time and money to just have @CHOCK make all my stuff right, I would go that way. I love my PS, and he is the guy to make them work right.

hello Chock, Are you saying that the PS parts in the pic are for a 67 ? if so, then i need to wait and find a 65 66 version. The guy has it advertised as coming off of a 65 66 model Mustang.

What is your suggestion for adding PS to my 65 FB. I'm not really one of those hardcore "keep it original" guys but, i would if i had an oppportunity to do so. also, what's the best aftermarket PS kit on the market if I was to go that route?

thanks in advance for your help.

The power steering systems are pretty easy to rebuild. Iíve done a couple with help. Par5s and advice Chock. N9 leaks and they drive great.. Iíve gone 100% original parts on both 66 6 cyl and 68 289 set ups. The only thing I changed was adding a roller idler arm to tighten it up a bit.

I had Chock rebuild the steering boxes as that requires some specialized tools. I rebuilt the rest with the parts Chock sent.

Getting the steering box out is a bit of a challenge, on a 289 but not horrible as long as you are willing to pull off the exhaust manifold and steering column.

Yes sir, Pictured parts are 67.
Just call me I'll try to help. Will accept the 67 as material on 65 66 system.
