Installing Power Steering on a 74 CJ5

I would like some information: The steering gear has a larger input shaft. Will a lower coupler kit for a 76 power steering model fit the 74 manual steering shaft?
And will the low and high pressure hoses for a 76 work on the retro of a 74? I got the gear from " Quadratec" and it was a direct bolt up. The power steering pump and bracket came from a V-8 Wagoneer not sure of the year but it fit perfectly to the 304 V-8 in my CJ. Any help would be appreciated on the steering shaft and hoses.

Thanks
Jim

Yes the larger coupler will fit the '74 steering shaft.

Any '79 and older hoses will work as long as the fittings on the pump and box are both for inverted flare. Saginaw boxes and pumps went to o-ring fittings in 1980, so it would have helped for you to know the year of your pump donor.

Thanks, I got it all figured out and it's great. I should have done this years ago.

All I had to do was find a 79 or older pump and get the rear fitting, and put it in my pump. That is all you have to do to make a newer pump work with older hoses. It is getting harder and harder to find mid 70's vehicles in the wrecking yards.
