1967 Mustang Power steering Questions about pressure port identification

Hello I was wondering if anybody knew how i could identity which pressure port my 1967 Mustang has because I need to order a a new replacement part. It is either a 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch pressure port, but how can I tell. Also my grandpa was wondering for his 1967 mustang if he purchased a manual rack and pinion kit from year one if his power steering gear box would still be used or not? please any help would be appreciated.

A rack and pinion takes the place of your steering box the drag linkage pitman arm and idler arm.

Hi, I just took mine off my '67 for a rebuild, follow the pressure line (the one from the center of the pump with a big female nut connecting it) from the back of your PS pump down under your car to the control valve. It should screw in to a port on the top side towards the wheel.

The line on mine is the smaller 1/4", I can just push an open end 1/4" wrench over the metal line at the control valve, also a 7/16" open end wrench fits the fitting to remove it. I would guess that the larger 5/16" one takes a 1/2" to loosen the nut.

The lines are physically bent different also, see pics on rockauto.com.
Can't answer your other question, never researched that.
HTH, Jon
