Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

My question is, why hasn't Captainfab started making these?

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

This is the PS pump bracket I bought off ebay. I have no idea if it's correct or not because I changed my motor plans when I found out the motor wouldn't fit back in (easily) after I bagged my truck.

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

Two reasons. One is finding pulleys that will work and second, I simply don't have the time with working 70-80 hrs a week every week.

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

The old Webshots link dies, so I had to shift EVERYTHNG over to photobuckets - Oh Joy!

Here are the pictures of my OEM mount setup, not the tie into the engine mount bolts.

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

Awesome pictures especially for someone new like me. I love the paint job also. Maybe someday I will paint my engine. Thanks a lot for posting these:-)

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

I know this is a really old post but I don't know anything about the GMC v6s other than the PS brackets are relatively hard to come by. I have found a big truck with the brackets(a/c) as well. I have heard the big truck brackets are somewhat different. Does this mean they will not work on the smaller trucks? I appreciate any advice

if you have found the truck, have a look at the bracket and compare it to the one Jake has shown above. the engine blocks are all the same. biggest difference will be in the pulleys

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

Here is a big truck V6 with power steering. I've seen them mounted high up as well as off to the side, like this one. I don't feel it would fit a light duty pick up.

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

Does anyone know if someone is actually making these brackets yet and if the double pulleys for the fan are more accessible or someone has found an alternative source part that would do the job?

I would like to get power steering, but I would also like to steal the hydraulic pressure for a brake booster set up as well (hydraboost).

Thanks!

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

AP; check out Rockdrillers build here;

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=453161&page=4

He’s using a hydro boost on the V6 and made his own PS pump set up.

Far as I’m aware no one is making any brackets.

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

He is a picture of my low miler 64 GMC 1/2 ton.
Seems my pump is a different design to what I am used to seeing. Also, does anyone know of rebuilt kits to service the power cylinder and control valve, these are leaky little devils?

Re: Power steering with GMC V6?

The cylinder and valve are basically the same as was used in the Corvette's up until '81?
