73 - 75 owners

I believe I am correct in stating that in 1973 power steering was available on a cj5. well I am converting my 73 to power steering and I am having a hell of time trying to find the correct high pressure power steering hose for my conversion. 304 v8 with correct power steering power pump and brkt to correct mounted steering box on original box mount. I have tried, autozone, napa, advance and the hoses they give me have been different and "could" work with some mods. but it sure seems that there would be a stock hose that would fit as AMC meant it to.

anybody got some advise, photos or correct part numbers I would appreciate it.

Mines manual so I can't help with your conversion other than recommending checking Rockauto.com. Sadly, the walk-in stores don't know our jeeps. Got to use the Internet.

The basic shape looks correct to me.

What's wrong? The fittings or the shape and length of the line?

If you can't find ready made lines, you could make your own. A friend used one of these kits when he installed a SBC and power steering in a 3A.

the problem is that with the hoses I have tried they don't fit from the frame to the box. the steel portion of the hose is not the right length or configuration to mate with the box. the end into the pump is not the problem.

I would really love a photo of a original installation just to see what that is.

I like the speedway option will look into that.

That's pretty common that they aren't bent right. Lots of people have to do some tweaking to make it fit in that area, if yours is close enough to tweak.

That's funny because on my '75 I had trouble with the low pressure line. I think I did have to bend my high pressure line just a little too though. Seems like it was awful close to the bottom of the radiator. OldBlue 73 is right, most parts stores know very little about our jeeps. I can try and get you some photos this weekend. You could look at my build thread, but I don't think it will have the photos you need in it.
