i need one for my 79 k20. i put one on off an 87 and my hoses wont hook up to it.
the old style were 45 flare. the new are flat with oring lip . if possible get pump and hoses from 87 . or make change over hoses from both sets.
this is allways the way my luck goes . i thought it fit rite on my truck and wouldnt cost me nuthing. but i just went and bought a rebuilt one for 200 bucs .
A good parts house will let you swap the nut out in the back of you’re pump with one that will work for you out of a core they have laying around. That and some new hoses and it’s a done deal.
yep swap the nut in back of your pump and youll be fine, the only real problem is the hi side hose it is one piece hose, and you need o ring type end fitting for lo side, me and many other ppl here have fitting and hose end laying around and maybe even an 80-up hi side hose assembly too,
79 older were flare seat
80 up o ring
as you have found out and many others have in the past
and will in the future
I've got a gear box off of a 79 and some extra hoses. Let me know if I can help.
I pulled the original steering box off of my '79 K20 when I put in the 6.2L diesel w/hydroboost and had to go to o-ring style fittings (since my donor was an '84). Everything was working good when I pulled it and I'd sell it for $25 plus shipping.
