That is nice and $75 is not a bad price either, I think I will have to order one up!

Thanks for the info!

$75.00 is just for the brackets, $249.99 gets you the pump and hoses. Just a tad expensive for the whole kit, but if you don't want to dick around trying to bash the pump and hoses together, might be worth it.

Yeah I got that. I have a pump and hoses that will work, just didn't want to mess with getting custom brackets fabbed.

Hell, the pump and hoses are the easy part. The bracket was what was driving everyone nuts.

I'd bet you can use that bracket with a PSC remote reservoir pump housing.

I don't wanna dump the A/C to swap in a sag. Anybody got a link to this PSC remote reservoir thing? I just looked at their site but I didn't see whatever it is you guys are talking about.

some of the dentside trucks came stock with a sag pump. Thats what Im using on mine. Astro van remote reservoirs are great for getting one up higher.

Some Suburban's (diesel I think) as well as Safari/Astro vans have remote reserviors. Or you can go this route as well (see link), the only problem is you still would need the 90* adapter on the high pressure side of the PS pump.

I posted that link before because I thought it would really help someone out. I was informed it wouldnt work because the units that are designed to use that little horse-shoe adapter required a longer pulley shaft to line up with everything else.

I still think there's gotta be a way to make it work...

I'd considered stock piling. I just dont have the space. But I'm sure I could do someone some good by mailing them out. If anyone's passing through Waco, there are a ton of 'em here...

Guess whomever came up with the kit forgot that one minor detail, they should've added that into the kit as well. I bet the full PS kit they sell comes with an extended shaft pump and that's how they get you.

No. The Wild Horses kit can use the standard heavy duty 1986 Econoline 150 (E150) van "canned ham" pump.

The horseshoe adapter is to bolt a stock round-case pump to the stock C2 pump bracket.

Here's the chain of command:

1.) Order the Wild Horses bracket
2.) Buy a E150 power steering pump (Saginaw)
3.) Order PSC round case remote reservoir housing.
4.) Source remote reservoir of your choice.
5.) Rock out.

6.) I'm heavily intoxicated and as such may have missed a step. If this doesn't make sense I'll clarify later.
