70 AAR Power Steering Pump
« on: December 01, 2019, 10:32:28 PM »
We are adding power steering to a 70 AAR Cuda that we are in the final stages of assembly. Which power steering pump should the 340-6BBL use? Obviously I can't reference the build sheet, since the car was built with manual steering, and researching engine compartment pictures hasn't helped either. I have a complete pump and bracket setup from another small block, but it is the style pump with the press on pulley, which probably isn't correct. So, which pump is the more accepted as correct  - Federal or Saginaw? Thanks, Willie

Here's the pump that came with my last AAR....I bought it in pieces, but I believe it to be original....Here's a question: Did all power steering equipped AAR's have a power steering cooler ?

I have not seen an AAR or TA without a power steering cooler yet.  Not sure if they all came with it, but I would guess yes.

I thought that the power steering cooler was determined by the rear end gear ratio

Yes, you are correct...I'm thinking it was 3:55's or higher....(3:91's 4:10's etc...)

However wasn't the standard gear on all AAR's 3:55's ? meaning they should all have the cooler ? Something I've always wondered about. :thinking:

yes, all AAR & T/As with power steering should have a cooler - the above orange AAR has the wrong pump  :alan2cents:

That AAR has been restored and sold twice over by now.....I think it's in Texas but I really have no idea...
