View Full Version : One more snag! 350 to 454 swap, in 85 3/4 ton --- power steering pump how to?

One more snag, we were going to install the 454 tonight but the power steering pump does not have a filler neck nor cap. It has a hose nipple maybe for a remote fill tube? It also has 3 lines attaching to the pump. My 85 has only 2 lines. No hydro-boost on my 85. Almost out of $$$$, what is the most economical way to get my big rig power steering? I'm sure others have encountered this situation.

It would have a remote reservoir that would sit up by the upper rad hose. Easiest way would be to just to swap pumps.

A cheap way to do it, just loop some hose from the gearbox right back into the gearbox, did it on an old 68 i used to have, couldnt turn very well sittin still but once you got movin just a little bit you would have never been able to tell there was no power steering pump at all
