    Anyone have any additional info on the Autozone PN 80070 that is in the tech section. Specifically, which fittings those are. I have a box off a '68 Skylark 350 and the pump off a '86 Olds Cutless 307. The pump came with hoses, but of course they don't fit the Saginaw box. I spoke with Classic Cruisers and they said just to get a hose from a GM application at the parts house, and of course that is not quite enough info for this rookie. I can have one made for $45, but if this fits my application, it's only $17.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your issue is the fittings...


    Your 1986 power steering pump has Oring fittings and not flare

    Your steering gear is flare....


    I have hydraulic hoses made when I do steering conversions....and only use flare boxes and pumps.


    Good luck!

    You can unscrew the fittings from *any* saginaw pump and screw it into another to swap fitting styles...

    napa part # 20-6000 is the standard saginaw pump with 5/8" keyed shaft, and flare fitting. It is about $60.

    An FJ60 high pressure power steering hose, also about $60 from Napa is flared on both ends and works will saginaw and Toyota flare fittings. It even has a nifty abrasion sleeve.

    Good luck.

    read post #53. I still have a few to convert o-ring to flare. It will do either (or both) box/pump. I paid $5 each. I have been running it for over a month, no problem. a friend is the mgr at an auto parts store who recommened them.

    Those lil' doo-dads are pretty sweet. I think I found just the opposite online, that will adapt the gearbox flared fittings to o-ring style. If that works, I should be able to use the hoses that came with my pump. I'll update this thread when I get to that point.

    Thanks for the info fellas'
