During our last vacation in California I was able to secure a A100 pickup (Model '69) with 318, 727 LF, Power Steering and five window. Pretty decent condition.
Electric is done (all works), Engine runs strong (approx. 17-18 inHg vac in idle).
Some mechanical to be done (front springs rear hanger driver side is "gone", part is already available), rear bumper got a strong hit and needs to be fixed, floor pan (of course) and new windows.
Unfortunately, power steering is leaking like hell. It's not the hoses (dry), but the control valve and the ram cylinder.
Now, as a first step I thought about converting to manual with a "normal" drag link and removal of the ram cylinder.
Is that possible, e.g. does the manual drag link match the pitman arm and all?
Further, has anyone sources for replacement parts for the control valve and the ram cylinder? The on I found in the www claims he can only do Ford control valves, as the Dodges have different measurements?
Thanks in advance.
