    I am looking to convert my 64 Valiant from manual to power steering.
    I have a box, Pittman arm, not sure if that's different, a pump , column.

    Need brackets for pump. Everything is from a 66 Valiant. Question is do they interchange.

    1963 to 1972 are the same box, so it should bolt right in with the proper brackets.

    I would think the mechanicals would be the same. Can't guarantee.

    Greetings: I am new to the forum. I have a 1966 Valiant wagon and am looking for the rear window side air wings/scoops or whatever they are called. Any ideas of how to redirect the exhaust fumes so I may open my rear window. Harry.

    I haven't seen those for many years. They did work both for exhaust fumes and dust. May have to find a vintage recycler or make your own.

    Many year ago, I converted a 1965 Barracuda to PS; used a 1967 Dart/Valiant pump, box and hoses, didn't even loosen the fittings, a 1965 Coronet/Belvedere 273 V8 for its pump brackets and a 1964 Dart/Valiant steering column due to it being shorter than the MS assembly. Setup worked like a charm. :)

    Never do that.
