Re: Power steering up-grade?



Mine is a big block. Go to Buchellin(sp) web site. They advertise in the Mopar magazines. They have good pictures of the power steering pumps and the various brackets.  I'm not sure which stock brackets I used--just searched thru my pile of parts.  I did have to order one bracket from them.....................MO

Can you show pictures of the pump and brackets. I tried to install a newer pump but had trouble with the brackets and the fact I could not get the pump off the water pump hose to the lower radiator. Is your car a big block or small bock? Mine is a small block with cast iron water pump. I can show pictures if necessary. Thank you.

MO,
  I think you hit the nail on the head.  Rick Ehrenberg did an article a while back about tailoring pump pressure to your taste using selective thickness washers.  I'm sure the information is floating about on the web, although Gary probably has the information stashed someplace on here :)

  Buddy Jack Opperman has experimented with this with what I believe to be positive results... I know he checks in here on occasion - Jack, any help?

Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.. On my 64 Dode B body with stock power steering.---I got the correct brackets and installed the later  power steering pump. I believe there is a difference in pressure, and that the steering has more " road feel" And that it does not have the feeling of  to easy to turn the steering wheel.    The return hose on the pump barb is much smaller than the outlet on the power steering sector. That leads me to believe the later pump does not put out as much volume as the earlier one did.   My imagination or could it be?.........................MO
