I Don't know if this will help you but...
I know that on cars Ford had a 3 piece Bendix power steering setup. I have one
on my '74 Maverick that I was forced to rebuild, and have seen them on Granada's
and even on a '66 Mustang. This sounds somewhat like what is being discussed, as
some of the hoses go to the Control Valve that screw onto (or in the case of the
old Mustang was integral with) the end of the drag link. Some hoses also go
between this Valve and the Power Ram (looks like a shock absorber bolted up into
the whole mess).

I think this type of setup was even on trucks as well. Someone else may be able
to confirm this.

I don't know if this is similar to the kit you guys are talking about or not,
but these parts I am speaking of can be found and rebuild kits were available 2
years ago when I did mine.

I hope all this helps

I would like to add P/S to my '66 F100 4x4 (Dana 30 front axle) I also heard
about the tpye of power assist cylinder you talked about. Is that the best
way to go?

Jack,
Those must be misprints. All 1953 and later Ford trucks are designated as
F-100's, F-250's, F-350's on up.
