350 steering

Post by gregjo1948 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 4:59 am

Did the straight 350 have the power assisted steering option or did it come out on the 350B? thanks, gregjo1948

It was available on straights as well. Early ones had a power steering pump on the front of the engine, later ones used hyd system pressure. Mine had the pump with reservoir.

Thanks Lavoy. Found a straight 350 on CL but the owner couldn't tell me if it had power assist steering and I wasn't sure if it was even an option. After using my 350B with it, I don't want one without.

Tell him to look under the seat for the steering boosters.
At one time, a buddy of mine know of a complete NOS power steering kit for a 350 straight. Trouble was, the guy wanted $3000 for it.
