Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

My arm is sore and I want to change from manual to power steering on my '73 (258 I-6). Been reading all the old post on power steerings (that took awhile). I was given a pump & box off a '72 commando (don't know what engine).
Where does the pump go on a 258 I-6? It looks like it should should be installed where the alternator is now (bottom drivers side). Move the alternator to other side? What about the belts & pulleys? Do they all use one belt or are there now supposed to be two belts.
Is anyone out there with a 258 I-6 with power steering that can tell me or send me photos or sketch of the layout? A trip to the wrecking yards to check this out is quite at trip (80 miles). See ya DAVE

On my 78 CJ7 the power steering is on the driver's side and the Alt is on the passengers side. Different belts. Sorry, don't have a pic.

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

Thanks, one more question. The pulleys ..... crankshaft pulley is it a single or double? Water pump, single or double.

From memory...both the water pump and crank are doubles. I'll check tonight.

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

The lower two bolts of this guy bolt to the driver's side of the block ...



... right above the block's casting numbers here ...



And it sits like this ...

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

I had some fun putting a PS steering pump on my 76 CJ5 258 off of one from a 84 CJ5. It turns out that the water pumps shafts are different lengths and the dual pulley didn't line up with the PS pulley. I used the longer nosed pulley off the 84 with a spacer beteewn the pulley and the shaft on the water pump to make it line up. I probably could of used the 84 water pump if I didn't sell it with the engine.

The spacer was just a piece of 0.062" aluminum. It doesn't sound like much but it sure made a difference in how the belt fits.

This is how mine mounts on a 76 CJ5:

2 bolts on the water pump, 2 bolts on the block (shown on Jaffers pic), and 2 bolts on the intake manifold.

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

Jaffer,
Thanks for the great info/photos! Now I see why I could not figure out where this pump goes .... wrong brackets. I tried to attach a photo of my pump/Brkts but the 100k limit got me .... I have to learn how to change the picture size.
I'm sending a photo to your e-mail ... can you Identify? off a V-8? V-6? or ??

Thanks DAVE

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

Ohhh, Got the pictures Dave, This is beyond me without a lot of fabricating.

This is Dave's engine:

Notice the lack of mounting holes on the block, manifold and water pump.

This is Dave's Power steering pump.:


Any ideas how to mount it? Any Idea what this pump came off of?

Please help Dave.

Thanks for your help.
I'm totally lost now. I hope we can identify the pump so I can trade it too someone who can use it. I didn't find out or see anything at the wreaking yard last week. Maybe next week I can try another yard and find what I'm looking for.

Re: Power Steering Pump location 258 I-6

Now I'm realy confussed. On another board I hear that some '71 and all '72-73 and some '74 have the power steering on the passenger side on the I-6's. I've never seen one yet but this fella swears it's in his shop manuals. I'm wondering how they ran the hoses? I wouldn't want them exposed to a rock or log? I wouldn't want them block air flow to the radiator? hummmm? Anyway the pump I have will not fit with the brackets I have. I hope to make at trip to J & W jeeps (wrecker in Sacramento area) he supposeityly has a ton of jeep stuff. It's 200 plus miles one way but I need to get this done so I can get the Heep out of the garage and back on the trail.
