    I am doing the croosover and I think I got a steering box from an older model, my Blazer is an 82 and the fittings on the powersteering hoses don't fit. If I get new hoses for a truck from an older truck will they fit in my pump or do I need to change the pump to an older style also?

    Are the ends of the hoses flared or do they have a tip with an oring on them. If they are Oring then you need to get flared hoses and change the fitting out on the pump to be a flared fitting. I would go to the junkyard and just pull the fitting from a pump there and replace yours. No need in buying a whole new pump just for a fitting. Oh you would need to get new hoses also.

    If your hose wont fit the steering box then you need new hoses anyhow. The problem is there is not a hose that is oring on the pump and flare on the box. You can have them custom made but they are $$$. I have not looked for the fitting in the store but I would have to say they do not carry them.

    Yep when the box went to Oring fittings so did the pump. Not sure if they had hydroboost before 1980 but the fittings on the Hydroboost unit are oring also.
