Early power steering parts ID

I've been collecting parts here and there for my '66 SS and have purchased 2 sets of components from 2 different batch deals....none of them really correct but may cross over to '66. That's where I need your help. I seem to remember Jeff Helms posting pics of the truck stuff along with correct '66 stuff awhile back, just can't find the thread.
So, here's what I have....

Re: Early power steering parts ID

If I'm correct, the pump on the left is a '66-68 chevelle pump, the one on the right is possibly a truck unit, don't know?? The reservoir on the left is a truck unit and the one on the right is a '68 chevelle unit. The truck received a longer hose and the chevelle a shorter hose, maybe 20 and 14 inch respectively.
Now the long narrow bracket on the pump I'm iffy about, haven't tracked that down yet.
Both cradles appear to be the same unless I'm missing a subtle difference??
Thanx in advance. ...

Look at the dates on those original tower clamps

Yes, should have mentioned that. The long hose had 4/71 clamps while the shorter hose had a 4/67 clamp. That kinda confirms some of my findings but not the pump or bracket stuff.

I have a latter (71from the clamps) "truck" pump and brackets on my 66 if you want any pictures

The '66 cradle is shorter, and has a more "straight" end (opposite where the pump mounts), where the later bracket looks bent. The later cradle is the one sold by all the resto suppliers...

If you have a picture of the other end of the cradles, they can be identified...

in the first picture, the pump on the left appears to have the '66 shorter cradle, but the reservoir with the "pink" cap appears correct for '66.

Once you go RAT, you never go back...

Re: Early power steering parts ID

Here's a better pic of the cradles. They appear the same length, actually all dimensions seem the same. I thought the reservoir bracket was shallower then the chevelle version.....on the pink capped unit. I've seen the repop pics of the '66 and it seems deeper??
