i want to add pwr steering to my 66 gto. went to my local salvage yard today with a 4 acre " private" older car section. i was informed there was a 66 lemans with a complete pwr steering set up. my buddy and i found a 65 gto w/no motor, the 66 lemans and a 67 gto. wound up pulling the alternator (for a spare to rebuild) the steering box(p/n 5691676), alt/ ps bracket(p/n9778848) and water pump pully(9778808). the hoses were cut and ps pump taken off already :(. the 67 had a pump, hoses and bracket( p/n9786903) so i took those but they are not the same for a 66 as i found out. can anyone verify if the part #s so far are correct for a 66 gto 389 with no a/c and a tri power? also what other parts and #'s i will need( pump and other brackets,) to complete this conversion. i will the grab belts and new hoses from a supplier. it was a fun day and the price was right so i'm not to bummed about the missing pump. any pics or parts for sale are much appreciated. thanks again guys :cheers

I think you can get a pump from NAPA. Man, it sounds like days I spent at the junkyard...about 25 years ago!! Great finds. Can't help you on the numbers. I have the '67 and the '65 chassis books, but not the '66.

DID The 67 have a good TRUNK LID ??????????? Eric
there were 2 deck lids one laying on top of the other. they looked straight. it was really sad to see that car there. the motor was there and had a coffee can over the carb, and the quarters were better than mine! you would need a heicopter to lift it out of that place though, pretty far in with cars stacked everywhere. my buddy wanted so bad to save it so bad.
