I have a 85 CJ7 with manual steering. I took the power steering box off of my 87 yj and mounted on my cj. The problem I have is I cant figure out what spline my power steering box is. So I can order the right one. I know its 3/4 do but not sure how to count the splines because it has a big flat spot on it. Sorry for the newb question but this is my first jeep build.
If you snapped the bolts in the frame, good luck getting them out. I ended up taking a chisel and knocking the hell out of them to break the tack welds that hold them in..Then it is a circus to balance the new lock washer and nut while starting them....Takes a while, but doable!

yea im talking about the ones that hold it to the frame. Maybe I can get them out without losing the nuts.
Soak them with lots of PB blaster for a day or two (you can spray inside the frame thru one of the access holes on the side. Use a reverse drill bit and maybe an ez-out... you might get lucky and they'll back out. I had one that was very difficult recently and I ended using an acetylene torch to burn it out and then I cut a small hole in the side of the frame to weld another nut inside. Welded the hole shut when it was all done. As mentioned earlier, be sure to use some anti-seize on the bolts to avoid this problem in the future.
