    I got what I think is a saginaw pump from what I'm told was from a late 70's Impala, how to I tell if its a good one for a conversion??

    What are the good year vehicles to get them from?

    Do you mean pump or stearing box? Pumps aren't 4 turn
    Just boxes....Turn the input shaft and count revolutions from lock to lock (all the way right to left or left to right) to tell how many turns you have.

    I dont think the pumps are anything special. Yours looks right. Usally it is the stearing box that is harder to find

    If you are running SBC the dual pulley is a nice feature. My dual doesn't squeel like the singles. I don't know about dual belt on Fs.
