My car has power steering as well. I took it out when I bought the car in 1978. I was 22 at the time. Sometime after I turned 50, I was cleaning out my mothers house and found a very heavy box upstairs in the garage. In the box was my complete power steering setup. Once you turn 50, power steering looks a lot better! I will put together the story of my original block and start a new thread. It's a long read!
