Hey guys, I am in the finishing stages of putting a CV IFS into my '58 F 100. I have the suspension installed and the motor in. I have started putting all the "little" things back on the motor. My main hang up is that I don't know where I can get some power steering hoses made. I have a '03 front suspension and a '79 power steering pump. I need to connect the two in a way that will not leak. I have thought about getting a '03 power steering pump to solve the problem, but then I will have a pump with a serpentine pulley on it. Any suggestions?
Start calling. I find it hard to believe one of them won't make you a hose. You will need the CV portion that goes in the rack & the steel portion that goes in the pump. As I have said before the return line is just rubber hose with hose clamps.
I called NAPA and the guy said that if I had the ends that I need then he can join the two. I also called CarQuest and that guy told me it just depends on what they have and what I need. I will probably go to the salvage yard and grab the hose that will fit my pump just to be safe. Things are looking up.
