Want to add PS to 71 429 Mustang w/ manual steering. What PS pump brackets will work?
#1
My 71 429 CJ Mach 1 has manual steering and I would like to convert it to power. The engine is a stock replacement 429 ThunderJet without A/C. I found a source for a quick ratio PS gearbox. What other 429/460 applications could I use a PS pump/pulley/bracket from? My crank and water pump have 2-groove pulleys already. I would prefer to use a Saginaw-style pump, if possible. Thanks.

Check the junk yards for some old lincolns and such from the early to mid 70's. A lot of the old LTD's and such all came with big 460's. I would just get all the brackets and accessories off something like that.

Disc brakes all way around.

Thunderjet,
I used brackets from a 79 Ford Truck with a 460 for the power steering and alternator. I re-used the power steering pump that was born with my car, just changed the bracket over.
Thanks, Jay
