Anyone ever use one on a hotrod build? I have a l83 engine that does not have a place for a power steering pump and no one makes a bracket yet. I am putting the engine in a 89 silverado. I found some for mazdas and other cars but not sure if they would handle a truck steering box.

That kit doesn't look too bad . Probably cheaper than trying to piece together your own . I guess in Texas you cant buy a used snow plow pump. ;)
Was there a manual option on that generation pickup ? ---Trevor

I think the Toyota MR2 had electric pumps in them.

So, if he sends you, 5 bucks US for the part, and 10 for your time. It's all good?:p
