    SBF power steering brackets.
    by topher5150
    I have a mid-80s 351w that I put in my 47 Ford. The issue that I'm having is, I think it's a 351 bracket, which puts the pump too far out.



    I found this 302 bracket D80C-3C511-AA and wondering if this would bring the pump in closer?

    I have a question about the proper assembly of drum taillight parts. I am attaching some pictures of the three parts I have now - the nickel plated housing, the lense and the metal STOP plate. However after looking at Bratton's catalog, it shows two additional parts for drum taillights. The first is a lense gasket in the second picture and 2 small cork looking gaskets in the third picture.

    I got the truck side of the harness pinned in for the sport bar 3rd brake light. Had to remove the fuse block under the hood and take apart the plug and swap out the wire for the trucks 3rd brake light for the sport bars light. More wiring fun to come.

    I just pressed a pair in on Friday from each end. I pressed them in with a friend's press, and he fortunately has the reamer too. Everything went well. On the top one, I had heard of cracking it, but I made sure it started absolutely straight and put some oil on it to keep it from binding. Maybe I should have used the vise to press them in, but all did go well with the press.
