69 BB Power Steering Pump & Hoses. Correct or not.
« on: March 08, 2016, 01:20:49 PM »
I thought for sure my ps pump and hoses were original, but after looking at Bentley’s PS hoses I'm not so sure. His is a relatively early car. Are all 69s bent the same? Specifically the large almost u-bolt shaped part. I’m trying to give “Spooky” some good feedback on his hose covers that he sent me so I want to confirm my pump etc is correct.
The tube coming off the back of the pump doesn’t look quite right to me. Correct, early/late thing or just not correct?
Any pictures out there with detail like mine of correct PS pumps and brackets for a big block 69? I was having a hard time finding any that were confirmed correct.

Thanks.

Your return line is in the wrong place. Should come out the bottom of the can.

That's what I've been seeing mostly also, but isn't it possible that there are different designs? Especially with mine being a 1970 style 402? I find it interesting that the bracket lines up perfectly with the bulge in the reservoir on the back. I've confirmed the brackets are original.

Pump is clearly a replacement.

>What's the date on the ps box?
Good call Kurt. The box is 183 9.
That could be the original. Date is reasonable.

Thanks Kurt. I'll close the book on the pump. Replaced.
