Hey all, 

I’m looking to buy new power steering hoses for a 351C, and I haven’t had any luck in finding some, wondering if anyone had any links or knows any keywords i should look up? Just reply below, thanks!!!!

Rock Auto has a good selection of hoses if you're not needing "concourse" style repops with the Ford part #s.

Whatever you do don’t buy Scott Drake hoses, they are junk! Had a relatively new one blow apart on me when I was making a turn. Almost hit another car and had atf all over my perfectly clean engine compartment.  Angry

Keep in mind if you are looking for the adapter from the pump to the pressure line (pictured below) they do not make them. You can try to find a used one or make your own.

I bought my replacement lines from Autozone. Wasn’t worried about getting the Ford part number for the replacement. They have worked great so far.

And the metal line that 73pony has pictured was missing on my car. Someone had used a high pressure line off of a 250, which will work without the metal extension tube, but rubs against the master cylinder.

The metal tube that is pictured, I ordered from West Coast Cougar. They sell good, used, hard to find parts. I highly recommend them.

 71's are the long pressure hose that goes up on top of the shock tower brace. 72 and 3's are the short hose. But that may not be a concern to you. I got mine form NPD, but no idea who made them. Had no issues thus far, maybe I should check out what is available elsewhere.

I'm in the process of a total restore on a 71 mach. I continue to find Scott Drake parts as the only after market offered. Out of 8 different parts 7 of them was total junk. I called scott drake only to hear you must call the manufacturer not us. They want nothing to do with the customer, they only deal with the distributors. 
I've been in retail my whole life (retired now) and never seen such blatant disregard for the consumer. Ok....... I'm done ranting and raving. SORRY   Undecided

Geoff, the 72’s had the longer pressure hose too. At least till sometime after the mid production. My car had the long one and was built on 2-2-72.
