Re: power steering conversion on 72 cj-5 chevy motor

sorry no site,but I did this conversion many years ago,with the exception of the chevy engine,but the amc used a gm pump so other than hoses its a no brainer.
I changed the box to a flair fitting style box (mid 70's vintage?),changed the pittman arm to the power steering version,and changed the lower steering shaft coupler that mounts on the box.
thats it!
so easy its scarey

Re: power steering conversion on 72 cj-5 chevy motor

I did the same thing on my 79 cj 5 with 350. What I did is found out what year engine I had and made a trip to the junk yard and found one. The return line on the pump was to short so I to get a hose and cut it to the lenght I needed and clamped it to the steel line. It was pretty easy, the only hard part was finding out how the bracket mounts.
