Power steering conversion

Postby SmokinM » Fri Jul 20, 2018 9:39 pm

Recently got a 1977 C60 Chevy dump truck for around the farm. Decent solid truck that runs good powered by a 350 gas motor. I would like to put power steering on it. How hard is it to convert, anybody here tackle a similar project. Thanks

That’s it ,seems simple enough. I can get pump and steering box easy enough, hoses should be pretty easy too. Might have to fab up pump mounts. Not many of those around for junk parts here. Either running or in the scrap yard grinder. Thanks
