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.
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.
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.
