    I ordered the power steering pump top,the filler cap and gaskets,i guessed at the diameter of the top at 4 3/4 , if it is 2 small I'm sure a parts store will have the right size. I only hop that gets here before the thermostat gets here. I want to put it before I fill the cooling system, I figured the thermostat was my problem with empted my radiator. must have had another senior moment. leonard

    Ford used the same Eaton power steering pump but it has a fill cap.

    Yep, I have used them for at least 20 years now. Just too handy not to use, whether "correct" or not.

    Yep and NPD, CJ Pony and others have them also. If you look through the different Ford applications you can even find one with a "filler neck" if you have room to clear it. They all are the same diameter, and the hold down post is the same.

    That is what my brother used on his truck. It is much easier than removing the lid each time. I believe the chrome is stock too.
