Very nice ejection seat.

Just needs a yellow and black striped ejection seat handle.



Looks good!

The install isn't quite finished yet -- waiting on a different fitting -- but I added a Saginaw PS pump to the 4-bolt steering box upgrade ... not for any real reason at this point (hydroboost is of interest down the road), other than having found a Saginaw accessory bracket on an E-van, and then the topic of Chevy offset reservoirs coming up in the Junkyard Finds thread. Previously, I had figured the Saginaw would be a super tight fit with my York compressor mount, unless going remote reservoir. As it turns out, I probably could have gotten by with just the offset version, not the long neck offset one. It ended up having loads more clearance than I expected.



Econoline bracket and Chevy S-Series long neck, highly offset reservoir for clearance below the York. The regular Saginaw reservoir alongside it is positioned at roughly the same mounting angle, showing how offset the Chevy truck reservoir is.



I was expecting to have to rotate the fill neck away from the York, but it worked perfectly rotated toward it. Along with my super convenient transmission dipstick tube, I feel like I'll be checking my PS fluid daily now! The long neck version has a metal dipstick built in.

Edit: I went back and checked the VIN, since there was no door (thus no door sticker) and the insurance window sticker simply said '98 S-series. It was a S10, not a S15.

One thing to be aware of, that isn't 100% clear in the previous picture...



With the offset Saginaw reservoir, the return hose from the radiator's tranny cooler (I used it for the PS cooler, since I added an external transmission cooler) is a bit tougher to access (hasn't been cut shorter and hooked up to the pump in the picture). The lines to the steering box are also tougher to get to.

The execution never quite works out like it came together in my mind... Stupid long neck reservoir! :)



Oops, so much for loads of clearance (as positioned). The Saginaw long neck reservoir doesn't fit so great once the intake tube is back in place.



Reservoir neck rotated out of the way, everything buttoned up and coexisting happily. I might move the supply hose over to the left of the reservoir neck to avoid hitting, and wearing out, the intake snorkel. That should stay well clear of the belt.



Rear view of the Saginaw (and York) setup. The PS supply hose has a 90 degree fitting for a gentle approach at the pump end.

I topped it off with Type F ATF, as the pump/reservoir had already been drained and the fluid in the steering box was still pretty fresh. I was surprised at how noisy the pump was...did I get the worn out Saginaw to disprove my theory that a used JY pump is likely to be just as good as a used stock pump of similar or greater age? I kept adding fluid to the fill line and turning the wheels back and forth, probably waking the dead, until the level finally stabilized and everything went whisper quiet. My radiator cooler is probably bigger than the stock spaghetti tubing cooler and took longer to fill up.

when i first installed my JY sag pump, it sounded like the dead were screaming to be released from it. i feared it had been contaminated and ruined, so i shut it down to hopefully prevent any damage to my JY steering gear. much to my disappointment, the new reman pump sounded the same for about 30 seconds then went relatively quiet. perhaps the JY pump was good after all. we'll never know.

Sounds like that must be a characteristic of freshly installed Saginaws. I was expecting noise from having broken in new rack & pinions before, but I was mildly concerned that it persisted as long as it did. Did you turn the wheels [back and forth] to get it settled in? I've been told that's the best way to pull the fluids through the system and purge air.

yea, perhaps that's just the way it is. i did turn the wheel back and forth to get the fluid moving until it stopped making noises.

Passenger door panel dyed to match the driver's door (no more flaky spray paint from the PO), and '80-86 metal window crank and door handle added while it was apart.

I was thinking about hollowing out the door handle to do away with the '70s/80s look, and maybe rough it up enough to see if paint would stick, but decided to see if the window crank is compatible first. Sure enough, the splines and everything are a perfect match. With the two pieces, maybe it fits together well enough to hold off on modifying the handle... I wouldn't mind making the crank knob black like some of the aftermarket ones, but it appears to be riveted on and not easily replaceable.

Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric Dye. It's a bit shinier than factory finishes, but it holds up well with decent prep and since I redid the atrociously painted dash with the same stuff, it doesn't have to match anything non-shiny.

I picked up a spare fill tube and dipstick for the offset Saginaw reservoir today, since I like to have spares of non-standard stuff, so for those curious about it, here's what it looks like removed from the reservoir:

I use the same filler neck with my Saginaw conversion. Good to see somebody else posting pics. Like you, I made a short metal brace which bolts to the top of the A/C compressor to secure the filler neck from flopping around. I pulled my filler neck off a S10 Blazer, but I'm sure there are many others that have the same configuration.
