    I'm looking for a 2wd box to do crossover.... I was asked if one with flare fittings would work. I thought I had the o-ring style. Now I'm not sure and can't figure out what I will need for crossover? I am going to have this made hydro by WTO as soon as I get for what it matters... thanks!

    Which style you want depends entirely on which style PS pump you have, O-ring vs. flare.
    My 76 is flare. Not sure what the yeat cutoff is.

    You need to take a line, hi or low pressure, off the steering box and see if it has a flared end or if it has an o-ring.

    For what it is worth, it's from a 86, and it's stock. I will have to check this weekend if there is no other way to tell...

    Stock 86 is definitely an O ring style.

    Thank you. I couldn't find the exact answer in search. It pulled up like 500 items! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    What ever you do get the right pump for the right box---after the last steering box i broke i had to hurry and buy another and got the wrong one--i had to buy the right hose for the box, cut off the end and put the old pump end (basically making my own hose.)ended up costing me $40 for one hose when all said and done.
