I now have a replacement motor for my 66 stang - reco 302.
anyway it's all flash looking, being painted Black with crome bits etc, but the power steering pump I have is the big old round type with a big mounting bracket, which I think will look out of place.
can anyone recomend a suitable replacement - I know I will need to probably get some new brackets fabricated ( suggestion for these as well will help).
Im new to americN muscle so i prob shouldnt comment however that pump looks like the one we had in our old XE falcon. I would imagine any older falcon would work specially from a later V8 altho they were cleveland motors so i dont know if the brackets the same or even if the pump is suitable.
In fact im gunna stand back over there cause ive been no help lol sorry
Hey Pete , try & track down anyone who might have old engines/brackets from Windsor style engines (assuming yours is a windsor) i.e. wrecking yards & if they don't have , ask who might or if they know anyone who gets into the older Fords. XY & prior are the models you'll be chasing I think. I've gotta a gut feeling that anything after them are clevelands.
I'm yet to chase down a correct bracket as the one I have from previous owner is hand made & a bit weak.
I got a new saginaw pump from Repco last year , was around $330 trade price.

E series falcons use them as well (EA/EB)
I have used one on a windsor before and was able to modify the E series mounts to make it work pretty easily. Not sure about the XF variant, but the E series ones have a mounting stud on the back for that extra bit of support.
They are ran on plenty XF and all of what the other guys have said,Commodores run them with a remote reservoir.
Mine is a rebult unit,there is bugger all in them,any power steer joint can sort you out.
Im using the reservoir with the support stud on the rear,I have a bracket made from that stud bolted to the head.
I made an alloy hoop bracket off the w/pump,With the power steer pump the bolt holes are recessed into the pump housing so I had to make some small spacers to make it all flush.
