Re: 65 c10 power steering question

A rebuilt steering box from a parts store is only about $175, new pump and hoses, about another $75-80, & add a CaptFab bracket kit. You should be able to do all new for $350-400

Salvage yard pump, brackets, hoses, and gear box I wouldn't pay more than $100-125.
so $200-250 should cover it with used parts.

or you can go to the junk yard and by the power steering pump, and steering box for about $100, thats what I did, then I had to buy a bracket for the steering box (you can get that from captian fab) I think they are $100 or so, then later when you get more money replace the pump and steering box and use the stuff you bought at the junk yard for the core.

Re: 65 c10 power steering question

There is absolutely no reason to spend $700.00 on adding power steering, unless you really want to.

All you need is a '68-'87 C series truck power steering box and pitman arm. For the pump, you will need one from the same year range, but it will need to mattch the hose fitting style of the box. Those changed in about 1980. The brackets and pulleys will depend on what engine you have and what style of water pump.

You can do it on a budget using, good used parts. When I built my Suburban 20+ years ago, I installed a good used steering box and pump. I put over 120,000 miles on that, and the seals on the box are just now starting to leak just slightly. The pump works just fine and doesn't leak a drop. Granted this may be an exception, but even if you get a couple years out of used parts. Just replace them with new or rebuilt parts when they start to leak or give problems.

Re: 65 c10 power steering question

listen to Captainfab. he gave me a list of what to get and this is what i am going to be doin shortly after getting my truck running. here is the part list and prices that my local orielys gave me

1970 chevy c10 p/s pump w/resivoir part# 20-6000 $45.99
$15.00 core

gear box part# 27-7501 $ 124.99
$ 50.00 core

pitman arm part# k6143 $ 68.99

p/s pressure hose part# 70911 $ 15.00
return hose part# 81206 $ 1.99/ft

and finally Captianfab's bracket.

prices might be a little different, i dont know. but all that has a lifetime warranty. so under $350, new parts, and warranty cant go wrong....

hope this helps

...and with a little comparison-shopping, u may find some parts even cheaper--for ex., a pitman arm for a 1972 C-10 at Advance A/P, part# DW-K6131, is like $35.99. Different year donors can vary in price considerably, at times, and work just as well--just make sure the individual parts match up.
Have fun!
Sam
