289 - 302 Ford Power Steering Pump Bracket. For sale is for a New Bracket Kit to mount a Saginaw Power Steering Pump on your 289-302 Ford motor. This Mounting Bracket has been designed to mount a Saginaw style Power Steering Pump on the drivers side of your Small Block Ford motor that has a 60's through early 80's Cast Iron water pump. Please look at the photos to make sure this will fit your vehicle. This is a very solid design that will not flex and will hold your belt in alignment when tightened.
This will fit on most late 60? S thru 1980 engines with a 4 bolt Crank pulley and a Cast Iron water pump with the inlet on the drivers side of the motor.
The Power Steering pulley is aligned with the 2nd groove (counting from the harmonic balancer out) of a stock or aftermarket V-Belt pulley. The Alternator belt will use the 1st groove of the crank pulley. (closest to the harmonic balancer).Our brackets have a brushed satin finish. This kit includes all hardware to complete your installation. We have made every effort to simplify this installation for you: The bolts have flange heads to prevent the washers from falling off during installation, and we have pressed in a nut insert on the back bracket, so you won't have to fumble with holding everything while installing the mounting bolts. We designed this as if we were going to install it ourselves! This bracket kit uses the (2) 7/16-14 threaded holes in the front of the head. (See Photos) and (3) 5/16 holes in the water pump (see Photos). These brackets are machined from 3/8 thick 6061-T6 Billet. Alcoa Aluminum in the USA. Do I need a power steering pump with a press fit pulley or a pump that has a keyed and threaded shaft? You will find that a pump with the keyed/threaded shaft will be much easier to work with. The pulley can be easily removed for installation of the PS Pump. The pumps with a Keyed /threaded shaft were used from the mid 60's into the late 70's depending on the vehicle.
In the 60's the pump housing had an oval shaped fill tube. By 1970 they had changed over to the more common banjo design. GM started changing over to the press fit pulley in the mid 70's..
Later GM changed to a "metric" pump. The mounting holes are in the same location, but the hydraulic fittings have metric threads. All styles have the same mounting holes and are interchangeable for the purposes of mounting with our brackets.There are differences in the location and shape of the return tube for the various car models, and a few trucks with hydroboost had a dual return. There are a few pumps that have a slightly different location for one of the mounting holes.
These are not very common, but to make sure your pump will fit our bracket: measure the hole to hole spacing on the 2 holes that are used to mount the pump. It should be 3.79" center to center (just over 3 ¾") If you happen to have a non-standard pump, it would be about 3 ½?
Very easy to obtain at your local parts store. Installation of our bracket kits requires a competent mechanic. Our Bracket kits typically cover more than a 20 year span of engine and car models.We strive for a perfect fit, but with differences in blocks, heads, aftermarket parts, alternators, power steering pumps, harmonic balancers, etc. It may not be possible to get a perfect fit 100% of the time. We have selected bolts and spacers for our kits that should work 99% of the time? But there may be situations where you need a custom bolt or spacer.
We will be happy to supply those for you to ensure a perfect fit. The item "289-302 FORD POWER STEERING SAGINAW PUMP BRACKET KIT CAST IRON WATER PUMP-" is in sale since Friday, November 9, 2018.
