Power steering pump brackets?

Hey everyone, I have a 1978 CJ-7 with a 258, T-150, and Dana 20. I also have manual steering. It's no problem finding the box, hoses, steering shaft and pump, but does ANYONE know where to find brackets to mount the pump to the inline 6? Junkyards around here don't have hardly any jeeps, and I'm having a tough time. Does anyone sell these brackets new, reproduction or N.O.S? Help!! Thanks.

I grabbed mine off of an 80's Cherokee, with the AMC 4 cylinder. I actually grabbed the whole pump and everything and it fit right on (it had V-belts, not serpentine). Just mentioning this incase you ruled out cherokees. They will have o-ring hoses. I can't tell you how happy i was to find dirt cheap parts that bolted right onto my CJ.

I have the same set up you have and I got everything from a 90 YJ parts Jeep. I modified the bracket to work with the 4.0 head also and the stock 258. Here is what I have so far.

Eagles are a good place to look, almost all of them were 258's and all had power steering.

I got mine from doing some heavy onling catalog digging and some help from the Chrystler parts shop, MOPAR # j3238265 is the block mount. There is a sandwich mount for the pump. I only got one side MOPAR #j3234993 and dont know the other #it was backordered and I didnt ever get it. So I leave that up to you to find. If you find the blow up and coresponding #rs it will be easy to figure it all out. I havent ordered the counterpart to this since I am on a fence as to what I want to do. So you can know I havent used them but take a look for yourself. It was so long ago that I bought them but I remember them being under $50, The search was kinda the fun part and the find kept me optimistic and intrested in the Jeep. Good luck

Here is a secton off the Part page:


This is what it looks like:


This is were the bolts are that you should take off:


Don't forget the double pulleys on the water pump.

And yes, this will be a pain later when trying to get the pulley lined up on your water pump because 3 different pumps were used on the CJ alone. No clue how may different ones were used on other AMC models.

Well I've seen various pullers but what does the installer look like? I don't want to crush the can.

I get a puller from advance auto, it was in their free rental bin. The puller is both the puller and installer. I can get the brand name later if you want it.

Sears Craftsman, Northern tool and supply, Mail order online catalog. Lots of liquid wrench WD-40 and or a local shop with a press would do it for $20.
