  • Steering: Power steering filter

    Resealed the ram, draglink and pump today (and replaced the hoses). It has an old fram filter inside the reservoir and I can't find that number or a cross. I didn't see one in the SI catalog, what is everyone using?.

    Going to check ford sites now.

    Thanks everyone.

      Only one I could find on-line was under the Ford number. Rest discontinued I guess.

        I used to have some NOS filters. I'll take a look in a few days.

            It must have been about 1961 or '62 when Studebaker stopped using those filters in the reservoir of the P/S Pump, none of my '64's have them.

                    What is involved/required to install this filter in an Eaton pump? Any magic? Additional parts?
                    Thanks

                      I'm not sure what the newer pumps look like, but the one I have has a shelf in the reservoir to hold the filter. So I guess you could just replace the reservoir if yours doesn't have the shelf and get the spring and washer.

                        Thanks.........I'll find a Ford setup and get a first hand look.

                          I just had the fluid changed in the power steering system in my '55 President and there was no filter. Should I be using one? If so, I would love to get one of the ones mentioned above. Anyone care to comment and/or provide a filter?

                            (taken from memory)

                            I swapped a Ford (Eaton) power steering tank w/filter and cover onto my '61 Hawk 289.
                            Did it to get a filter, and a dipstick.

                            There are a bunch of places to get this stuff...if you search around.
                            NPD has some of it....

                              I suspect that a small magnet would be equally effective.
                              The only debris possible would seem to be ferrous.
