yes there is a way. You should be able to put the power steering system on from a standard 1969 3/4 ton, it should bolt right up to the existing linkage. Double check with a good four wheel drive shop. yes-buy a power steering gear box-2 power steering hoses & a resivoir & fluid.Ajunk yard (IF they know what there doing) should b able 2 tell U what years fit your applacation.OR go to & order U one-They only handle OLDER truck Pars.Thet come in handy 4 my 1971 K30.

Unlike some transmission fluids, power steering fluid is not manufacturer specific; any high quality power steering fluid will do.

The output of a power steering pump is the high pressure side which goes to the steering box. It creates hydraulic pressure which makes steering much easier.

Power steering systems can be diagrammed into two chief components. These are the power steering pump and the rack-and-pinion steering gear. The power steering pump sends pressurized fluid into the rack which moves the gear actuating the tie-rods, which moves the wheels in the desired direction. The power steering pump has a low pressure return line and high pressure out one.

No, the pressure in the power steering system is too high for the clamps to hold the hose securely.

Usually the leaks are at the high pressure line or the return line of the power steering pump. Tighten all the lines at the pump.

Replacing the hose would be best.

you end up having no power steering and a high chance that yours inside fans will stop working

believe its the high pressure power steering hose.

Not a good idea, you will lose the power steering and power brakes.

Power steering has a pump driven of the engine that pressurizes hydraulic fluid to assist in moving the steering rack. Manual steering doesn't have the pump, so the effect to turn the steering wheel is high, especially at low speeds. Manual steering racks have a higher gear ratio to make it easier but an example is to turn your steering wheel with the engine off. You can get an idea of how much the pump helps.

It's right in the front on top. It goes from the Power steering pump towards the left side and then goes down, when you are facing the car

yes and no. with the amount of room, i rotated the motor, removed the battery, and partially removed the windshied wiper fluid resoviour. You must disconnect both hoses or the power steering pump will not come out. While you have the power steering pump out, you should replace the high pressure hose.

You have to disconnect the steering sector shaft, the inner tie rod ends, and the take 4 bolts out that connect it to the firewall. Also, if it has power steering the high pressure hose and the return hose has to be disconnected. Anytime after disconnecting a hose to the power steering system the system has to be bled of air or it will ruin the pump

Check to see where leak originates could be: Leaking pump seal Leaking high or low pressure hose Could be steering rack

Brake fluid in the oil won't be much of a problem. It probably won't hurt anything, but to be on the safe side, just change the oil. In the power steering pump it will be harder to get out. You'll have to disconnect the high pressure line and let it pump out, then re-fill it with power steering fluid.

You will probably need to replace power steering hose-I have owned several toronados and generation two bodies with 307 v8 always leak at power steering hose eventually-especially with high miles-replacing hose always worked for me. When this hose leaks it tends to get fluid on belts making them squeel

the larger line OR the line that has hose clamps on it or squeeze type clamps.the HIGH Pressure hose has CRIMPED Fittings.& B careful not 2 BREAK the PLASTIC power steering resivoir.

If it was low recently and you filled it, it could be air in the system. The overflow can also result when pressure in the tank is too high. This is often the result of a faulty power steering pump.

High pressure at the rack is 14mx1.5 Return line is 16mx1.5 Now try and get them to not leak.

The main thing that will happen after replacing the power steering high pressure house and you don't finish bleeding the air out of the line is poor performance. Air will replace the fluid and prevent the pump from generating the required pressure to operate.
