Re: Manual to pwr steering

You're going to need a pump, the brackets and belt for the pump, a power steering pitman arm, and a bell coupler for the end of the existing steering shaft. AMC Eagles are good candidates for the pump and brackets. Just about any Saginaw pump will work though. Don't let anyone tell you that a new steering shaft is needed either. I did the exact same swap on my '75 and the bell coupler is all you need to attach the shaft to the pump input shaft.
