Since installing my Vintage air on my 65,  I have noticed power steering fluid on the floor of my shop.  I looked at it a couple times and I thought it was a hose connection.  I tightened them both a bit and still notice some.  I could see a drip off the bottom of the pump but cannot tell where it was coming from.  Yesterday I had a few minute that I could look at it again.  Best I can tell its coming from the seam.  It's a slow enough leak that you cannot watch a drip develop.  I suppose a new pump is in order!!  GRRRR

Hi , i have spend some money and time to renovate the old one , then leaks ( after monted and try on road) the canister hole was damaged . 
Replace with a new one ( better a keyshafted ) no leaks . works , perfectly , no more troubles . 
imo

Yes, it will work, but it has a 1.0" bore.  A 15/16" bore MC from a 74 Maverick with non power front discs is a better choice for manual brakes.  The pedal will take less effort to activate the brakes, although it will have a slightly longer travel.  Use a 65/66 pushrod with either one.  The rod from the old single pot MC will work.  Or an adjustable will work as well.

I'm looking for a 65/66 fastback trap door.  Doesn't need to be pristine.  Speaker holes are ok, cuz that's what I will do to it.  Anybody gotta spare?

Anymore I would elect to reseal/rebuild it myself.  The quality of reman parts has taken a real nosedive in the last 10-15 years.  I've gotten several PS pumps that were bad out of the box, either leaked or made horrific noise.  The pressure in the industry seems to be low cost and therefore not much time is spent inspecting things, they just tear them apart, half @$$ clean them, and slap them back together with new seals.

This prompted me to rebuild all the accessories on my '89 GT project myself.  While waiting for my engine to come back from the machine shop I've been preparing everything that goes with it, including all the front accessories. 

I rebuilt the PS pump when all the ones on which I could find reviews were literally 50/50 good and bad.  Price ranged from $55-$165, yet spending more didn't seem to net any improvement in quality.  The seal kit with bushing was $11.27 from Rock Auto, a new Dorman reservoir was $15, and I splurged $19.99 for a Ford dipstick.  This is a C2 pump.  The rebuild took me about an hour total including the time I spent blasting and painting the housing.  The only real trick is I used my press to compress the Belville spring in it to get it apart.

The alternator was a similar endeavor, costing me $38 for a kit.  I even did the AC compressor, and that cost a grand total of $36.  A reman alternator is $90 for a cheap one, and the compressor is $250.  Nothing terribly hard about any of it.  There are YouTube videos for most of it if you get stuck or want to gauge the difficulty.

I'm pretty sure this is leaking at the seam not the seal.  looks like to me that the reservoir is made in 2 pieces then crimped together

It’s not that the image is PNG

On both posts you are missing a square bracket [ Or ]

The IMG and /IMG has to be enclosed in those brackets . That’s the way tinypic has it. They must be getting missed while copying or selecting ..

Here in my next post I’ll show you , using your link how it will show the image

Bonnie was acting when she ran out to the garage, I was sure we just hit the jackpot. She said no, this is better. FedEx just delivered 2 shiny new style steel wheels for her 67. So I guess I'll take back some of the bad thing I been saying about Scott Drake..........

Tuesday evening I put power to the harness with the PCM disconnected and verified that all the circuits and relays were doing what they's 'sposed to do.  I always ring out a harness with the ohm meter after it's built but powering it up proves if anything is goofy.
So....last night I installed the PCM, connected a couple of remaining EFI sensors and ran a KOEO test (key on, engine off).  I'm happy, no, I'm very, very happy to report the PCM reported a 11 code which is "PASSED".  Somehow I managed to avoid transposing any wires which is not always the case.  We plan to see if it will run tomorrow and I'll let you know.
