I'm trying to rebuild my grandpas 1966 Chevy C10 and add power steering to the 250 inline six. I'm having a bear of a time finding brackets for the PS. I'm hoping you guys might be able to point me in the direction of early 70's Nova parts sources.

One day I'm gonna own a '67 Nova. I looked at one recently, but my wife informed me that I needed to clear all my truck stuff out first!!

I'm glad I found your site, if nothing else to admire all your rides!

Welcome Curt (oops Bob)! :eek:

Check with Modern Chevrolet (Classic Muscle)...
http://www.oldmusclecars.com/
They support both the early trucks and Nova's.

Also think about placing a parts want ad in the classified section of the forum...

Are you "adapting" pwr steering (like from a kit), or was the truck originally pwr steering?
Just curious. :)

The 66's are cool. I recently restored one with my bubby. Pics are in the link below.

Thanks,
I'll check those out. The truck was manual steering. I have replaced all the front suspension and steering parts and put a new p.steering gearbox on using an adapter from REZ engineering. They were very helpful.

I have a new pump, but need a good way to mount it. The motor is rebuilt, but done as original.

The truck was originally owned by my grandpa Curt, who passed it to my dad, and now me.....hence my tagline. We call the truck Curt. ;)

By the way, I checked your pics out. Your truck is VERY well done. Mine is a long way from that point!

If you've got the standard GM pump to mount to the block, the basic BRACKETS on most GM 6's of that era should be prevalent and fit-up. Any junk yards close by? The only thing I'd caution you on is if the block or head is tapped correctly to receive the brackets. (or even the water pump. Can't remember the exact install) ;)

Neat story. Curt would be proud! :)

Oh! One last source...
