I finally did my power steering conversion on my '71 F250 4X4. It turned out awesome thanks to Glenn Davis. He proved me with some GREAT instructions on how he did his. Thanks Glenn. Let me know how your paint turns out on your Ford.

Super! That's a nice looking truck Greg.

Hey Glenn or Greg, you wouldn't be interested in writing a tech article?

I used the pump and gear box out a 72 F250. I had to have hoses made for it because I have a 460 instead of the original FE engine. I also had to make up a pump bracket to fit the pump to my 460. If you still have the FE engine in your truck you can use the pump bracket off the donor. Glenn Davis is currently putting together a tech article on how to do this conversion.

Interesting, so the '72 box, was that a 2wd or 4wd unit used as a donor? I have a 2wd ps. unit I could use as a donor, but don't know if that's what you used. Seems the manual unit in my 4x4 is way too small to run fluid through and use as a conversion.

I used the pump, pitman arm, and gear box from a 72' F250 2 wheel drive. I can send you intructions that Glenn Davis has made up. I also have a few pics of my installation.

Just a FYI, I have already submitted Glenn's fine article to Ken and he said he will be adding it to the tech articles.
