I have been told by pump rebuilders that the out put of a Chrysler Power Steering pump was around 1000PSI. It is hard to get specs out of the manufactures. About the only way to get reliable information is to do it yourself. Are you having a blowing seal issue or ?
You could always fab up a pressure relief system>

The Parking brake drum was used by Chrysler in the early 60's ( 60-63)just before the "P" was developed where they locked the transmission internally for parking.
. I have that early arrangement and I wished I had gone to the next generation 727. The simple reason is that the drum brake will require adjustment while in service. You also have to fabricate the floor with a hump for that drum.

There are plus's and negatives. AT least the drum brake gives the operator a foot brake and an Emergency brake option.

With the 727 fitted to an early machine one would have to fabricate a braking system which I don't think would be hard.

Hi Guys,
Just catching up on this subject and very excellent replies. If you are feeling that much vibration that you are feeling it at low RPM's I would suspect an installation problem just like what has already been mentioned, part in compatibility, alignment, worn pilot hole (which I have seen ) or worn out parts. Its difficult to analyse and work through through it! Been there myself1

Hi Everyone, I decided to go ahead with the conversion and did a lot of shopping. There are a lot of Torque Generators for sale on different shopping sites but look for vendors that have models that are still in production so parts are readily available, These items are used a lot in farm machinery and industrial applications so look in those sites!

The safety switch is a very simple method to signal you in the drivers seat that the transmission is in neutral via of an indicator lamp and also supply a ground to the starter relay so the start button can be pushed with results. The Neutral switch should be two connections, make and break, with one side going to ground!
If you switch is three terminal then I suspect one post is to run forward for the indicator lamp. Hope I helped. I am available for additional help!

I would just like to say thank you to the guys that have been helping me with my Power steering and Window questions. Without Northern Tracks this would have been an almost impossible task.
 Keep up the great work and we all will have a better understanding of our machines and make them better for years to come.

I have been going back looking at old post and this one really caught my eye!
 There is a picture of the original pin stripping that was applied when the machines were delivered---Amazing!
I feel this machine was worth saving and I don't think not too much money. Is the project still alive? Snowbusman

Hello Guys,
This Modification is pricey, The Torque convertors are now over $1000. us$ plus the steering pump and hoses. I suspect it will probably run around $2000. CDN

Tell me the truth- "Is it worth It?"

Hello, Is there a simple way to install power steering. New vehicles are using an electric units verses the hyd version. My 63 is in for body work finally so the end is in sight! (I hope) Now is the time to install PS if I have to open up the front end.
