Convert to power steering.

I have a 67 big block I want to convert to power steering. It has a short water pump. Any one make a kit. I don't want the separate pump tank, I want a one piece setup.

67 GTO more Chevelle than Pontiac.

Re: Convert to power steering.

That's a very simple mod. Any of the parts supply houses can fix you up with the various factory-style pieces you'll need.

Check your assembly manual for what parts you want.

Re: Convert to power steering.

Do yourself a favor and transform your car by installing the Lee set up. Use the brand new 800 Series box and have them blueprint it. I have a 14:1 ratio with a 20 pound valve that's perfect! It feeds back and returns after a turn like one of the better performance manual box's but has power assist for parking.

I got the 14:1 ratio because I wanted more centering crown for relaxing highway driving..

Those boxes above me, the fast ratio is 10:1. that would be a handful on the highway at 90-100 mph..

Thumbs up Re: Convert to power steering.

64-67 A body kit from CPP.

You will need a pump bracket and pulley when converting from manual steering.
You can get them from March brackets and pulleys.

I have a CPP kit in my 1970 Chevelle and it works great, Converted from manual steering and one of the best updates I ever made.

Yes i have been looking at the kits for a 67. They have the separate pump reservoir. I want to put a one piece pump on it.

I think Alan groove is your best option for brackets then.

Thank you for the links and the pictures. I just wanted to take the guess work out of it and get it right the first time. I have done the swap on other cars. Most recently my 72 Corvette.
