Newbie with a nice 1965 C-10 fleet side long bed. Has a 230 six and wondering what vehicle(s) can supply the needed parts to give me power steering. Anyone know what I need to ask the salvage yard for?
PS box, pump, hoses, engine brackets for the 230, double crank pulley...? That it? What vehicles and what years will work?

Get a kit from rez engineering,may go by a different name now,go to salvage yard and get a box pump and hoses from a 73-87 C10.tlThe pulleys and brackets are going be hard to find.

The engine brackets are scarce as hens teeth for your engine. You MUST have the brackets for the 230 & early 250 with the separate intake manifold. The brackets for the later head and intake cast as one piece won't work on your engine. However, the car and truck brackets are the same,so any Chevy with a 230/250 up to about '75 or '76 will work as well as any other GM product with the same engine.

See http://s1109.photobucket.com/user/R.../compairbrackets.jpg.html?sort=3&o=7 for a picture of what you can use and what you can't.

Stick with the truck pump and box. Get lines for whatever year it came off of. Replace the pitman arm with a new Power steering kind. They are different.

Best wishes and good hunting,

Les

Not totally sure what engine I have in my truck. I think it's a 230.... but if someone can tell me for sure I would appreciate it. [img]http://www.tabbnet.com/C10/C10engineShot.jpg[/img]
