I'm replacing the PS hose on my 69 396 05C car. Most of my car is original, but I see the SAE J188 spec on the old hose - I'm not sure that was on the original hoses.
The old hose is different than the replacement. The old one exits the back of the pump at 60 degrees, goes under the engine mount, and to the ps box. Fits great.
The replacement is not even close, it has a S-bend on the pump end.
Anyone have an original 69 BB with PS that can tell me which is on their car?
Following thru the books, there are two V8 hoses in the AIM - 3964564 (was 3953254) for 302 and 350, 3964565 for other V8's.
The 11/68 parts book list the 3953254 part for 350 and 396. Later parts books list 3964564 for all V8's. That makes sense.
But then I see 7811628 part in the 12/71 parts book that's only 69 396. Where did that come from? Was there a different 396 part for real?
Nice thing is that the replacement should fit OK, just not as clean and direct as what was on the car.
