This pump has a plastic reservoir, the P/S pressure hose attaches to the pump w/a qwik connect fitting.
For sure got the plastic reservoir, don't remember any quick fittings though. I'll take another look at it when I get home.

Does anybody recommend another brand than Red-Head? I just want bearings with races, like God made bearings...

Thank you sir. I just called up that gentleman and he is a solid American. He actually used to work at Red Top so he knows his stuff and I do believe I'll be buying my steering box there.
I'm ordering up this one. https://www.bluetopsteeringgears.com...s/show/7402333

I stopped by NAPA to check and see whether or not they offer a solution. They have four different rebuilt steering boxes but none of them has a proper bearing and race on the bottom of the sector shaft.

I also talked with West Texas Offroad aka Redneck Ram, but they say they don't machine in a new sector shaft bearing, their price is a bit higher, but most of all the rebuild wait time is a lot longer. They specialize in ram steering for big lifted 4x4s which is really cool but I don't need that right now. Just a steering box for my Bullnose that works correctly.
