General Tech / Re: Power steering/SBC help

You have speed sensitive assist.  Includes a 3 hole rack, 2 section pump, steering angle input, speed reference .  The reservoir has a ~ 5" o ring around the perimeter with flooded intake.  This pump also has 2 sections one low volume (small line) and one high(big line) third line is return to the reservoir.  I made a longer bracket to move the pump away from the header ~ 1".  I also added a ps cooler for more efficiency (junk yard mini van).  You may also be over speeding the pump if your lower pulley is bigger than 6".  The speed sensing s5 pump has a much narrower reservoir.

I have the following   (new,  has some garage rash)

1 engine cradle complete  w/ bolts (no rubber)
1 S4  t5 mount GM   (no rubber) may need one hole slotted to fit S5
1 S4  th350 mount  (no rubber)  may need one hole slotted to fit S5
1 pair sway bar mounts w/bolts  aluminum

I'd take $275 for cradle + one trans mount + sway bar spacers     shipped

How much of the kit do you need??

You need the belly pan for air control anyway, otherwise the hot air will cycle from the engine side to the front when slow/stopped super heating the rad.

The pitted bearing is 100% gone, the other not so good either.  For peace of mind Id change out all bearings ( also check the posi frictions and plates (behind the side gears, mine had broken ears and worn splines)   bearing kit     outer bearing and seals     standard posi rebuild     carbon posi rebuild

boy that fpr location is familiar

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

I cut both lines about where the arrow is and hard lined up to the fpr.  I have a carb so 4psi across firewall to dead end at carb.

If you want to get rid of the rubber line at the stock filter location, this fitting below will adapt your stock 8mm feed/return hard line to AN/JIC 3/8 hard line ( will need to flare tube 37*).  Plumb -6 (3/8) hard line up to your new AN/JIC filter, soft over to engine. same for return if you are doing it that way

This is a standard JIC hydraulic fitting (37*) Mine were about $7 complete at a Parker Store  The aero # can be cross referenced to the parker # or just take the list

summit does not have a complete fitting but these are the pieces to make one (one each of the following)

The adapter will bolt to it    BUT     input shaft length, clutch disk position, release bearing, pressure plate, flywheel.  All need to work together for the system to work.

I've only had that much metal (hardfacing) in a dif  is   1- when the spiders wore out,  2- worn out inner pinion bearing

There are 3-4 case shapes and 28 or 31 spline cv joints so it is not just throw one in. If you have the appropriate case, it is just a r&r.


If you do not already have it, here is a link to tremec's literature page where you can down load a pdf of t56 service manual.

Have you looked at a 2 section hydraulic pump? run hydro off 1 section and ps off of other.  We use full hydro steering on some of our equipment and second section for other needs.

Not much down on the mount kit, the pan and oil pump will hit (Ford).  subframe first.  I couldn't get my carbed sbc to fit under a flat hood.  With frame down 3/4" may just have cleared.  I run TII style scoop.

Did you swap the input shaft retainer to one designed for a non hydraulic throw out bearing?  The 3rd gen camaros had hydraulic throwout bearings

Not true the t5 had hydraulic actuated pivot fork,  same as the early t56.   The difference in the TO bearing is the anti rotation bump that hits the pivot fork ( the triangle at 7oclock in the above picture).
