    I bought a used gear box that was rebuilt and tapped for crossover steering. I installed it and after I did this I find out that the fittings dont fit from the pump to the gear box. How can I remedy this w/ out having to buy another one. The gear box number is 7802644 with additional numbers 288 next to it. WHAT CAN I DO? I want to get this s**t done. I am 80% finished with this truck. A little frustrated since I want to get this done but it seems like theres something always holding me back from getting it done. HELP!

    go to a machine shop or a hydraulic shop and they can make up a set to fit whatever you have.

    swap out the fitting on the back of the pump to the correct one.
