    70\' 2wheel drive longbed (no power brakes, or steering)

    Does anyone know of any way or company that makes a kit to install power brakes and power steering on this truck. I plan on prerunnering this truck and I want to make it at least handle well on the road.

    You could probably just buy all the PS stuff and put it on. A gear box will cost you about $300 NEW and a ps pums will cost you about $230 NEW. Then you will need all the hoses and stuff. Go to a junkyard and see what you can find.

    yeah, i figured i'm gonna scrounge the junkyards a bit. I might also look for a 80's 2wd front suspension and use that. That way I can take the a-arms,spindles and crossmembers altogether.

    All the '73 up 2wd parts will bolt onto your '70 but if you have a 1/2 ton it changes you from 6 lug wheels to 5 lug wheels to get the disc brakes. The '73 and up booster, master cyl and prop. valve can bolt on as well. I think 2 of the 6 holes will line up for the booster and you just have to drill the extra holes.

    Any truck that's 70 feet long isn't going to handle worth a crap on the street! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    67-72 booster is direct swap, 73-up requires mods to work, design is all diferent in 73-up, is only one rod and the removeable cage and pivot setup is gone for 73-up

    steering box can come off a 68-87 2wd burb blazer pickup whatever through 1 ton and pump setup depend son engine you have in the truck and what waterpump and alternator setup is on it,

    shgort or long,

    pass or driver side,
    etc/

    Time to hit the gym! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    The first two trucks I owned were a '69 & '66 LWB with manual drums, manual steering, manual trans, and a straight six. Good times I tell ya. Trucks like these make you a better driver. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
