Default 1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement

Hey has anyone purchased a PS pulley for a 66 that is the correct size and is ready to be installed?

I spoke with Dallas Mustang and they are only able to get a pulley where the centre hole is too small and needs to be drilled or machined out. Not really interested in doing extra work since the pump is already in just want to get a pulley and slap it on.

Thanks

You might be mixing Eaton Pump with Ford Pump parts??

Kinda sounds like it.

No way you will need to drill a pulley to fit the 66 FORD Pump, You will if you are fitting a Ford Pulley on a Eaton--Which won't work after destroying the pulley--Then the Pump.

Well Im not sure what Pump I have. The original pump on it had a screw on cap with the return hose outlet facing down, but my new rebuilt pump from mustangs unlimited has a clip on cap with the return hose facing upwards. The new pump also has a skinnier filler tube on the pump.

What should I do?

Im guessing my old one was an original ford pump, and the new replacement is an eaton?

First pic is a eaton pump (gold engine), second pic is 1965-1966 ford pump (blue engine), third picture is 1967 and later ford pump. (black engine)

How sure are you? Because this is the second time I have received a replacement pump and they both have looked like the third pic.

If that is a ford pump what pulley do I get? Mustangs Unlimited offer a 65-73 ps pulley single groove but they do not say for what pump it is.

This is the pump I purchased:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1965-1966-mustang-power-steering-pump-jpg.jpg

It says 65-66 Ford Pump Without A/C and recommends the following PS Pulley:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1965-1970-mustang-power-steering-pump-pulley.jpg

Not sure if I will be safe buying it or not, however I do have the following pump brackets:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1967-1970-mustang-power-steering-pump-bracket.jpg

67/70


1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1967-1968-mustang-power-steering-pump-bracket.jpg

67/69 289/302/351w


This is confusing me like theres no tomorrow.

I guess those are the available pump replacements, reproduced with the little filler tube. Original 1965-1966 mounting bracket is this:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1965-1966-mustang-289-power-steering-pump-mounting-bracket.jpg

1965-1966 289 Bracket

And original 1965-1966 ford ps pump uses one of these two caps:

Slanted Cap

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1964-1966-mustang-straight-power-steering-pump-cap.jpg

Straight Cap

And this is a 1967-1973 pump cap:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1967-1973-mustang-power-steering-pump-reservoir-stick-cap.jpg

Reservoir Cap

As long as you have a ford pump I think all the pulleys should be the same or interchange, the early eaton pumps are different pulley. This pulley:

1966 Mustang Power Steering Pump Pulley Replacement-1965-1970-mustang-billet-black-power-steering-pump-pulley.jpg

1965-1970 Billet Black Pulley

for 1965-1970 so I assume as long as it is a ford pump it will work. On the weekends Cj pony parts has 10% off and free shipping, and I think they always have free shipping but extra 10% off on weekends.

I guess it doesn't really bother me which brackets I have, would that mean i need to get a 67 belt for it to be the correct length?

Will order up that pulley and see how it goes. Hopefully I can finally get my power steering and front end suspension working properly for once

Okay guys got my new pulley today just need to put it on. Which way does it go? Does the round part sticking out go towards the front of the vehicle?
