Hello, the Aeroquip part numbers actually all start with FBM, not FMB.

Thanks.

They won't, requires adapting and I'm not entirely sure there is a straight adapter made to go from either 3/8 flare or metric oring to the style Ford uses... don't recall the name of the fitting but can look it up tonight. You may need to cut the Ford hard line and adapt/splice... unless you use Ford F250/350/550 hoses that will attach to the Ford hard lines at the HB... I probably have a set of those and they are metric oring at the HB end. You might also be able to source those at Autozone or the dealer but I'm pretty sure I have at least one set.

Ok a little lost with all that. I need a set of hoses off a f250 / 350 /550 with hydrobost.. Those will bolt to the pump. And HB with out any adaptation? Did I read that right? Would it be easier to have the hoses made? Thanks in advance.. I need ps Li es to run my motor.. I'm close to a street test and I'm getting antsy

I think that will do it for you if you just get the full lines. Then may end up long. Pressure from the pump goes to the larger 18mm port on the accumulator side of the HB and pressure out from the smaller 16mm HB port goes to the pressure in on the steering box.

If you can, you may want to grab the pressure valve and spring out of a Ford HB pump too, it may give you more line pressure over a non HB pump's valve. Haven't really sorted the Ford stuff out yet but I did pulll a valve to mess with and compare.

Here's the hard line from the HB to the Ford pump line: (threads will have teflon tape at the ends only, on the center section of hard line, not the HB end)



Here is the valve from the Ford pump showing the cut off section of the hardline to the HB:

Can I run a PS cooler with this?
Certainly, make sure it is installed down line from the T-fitting in the return line if a T-fitting is used.

So you mean between the T fitting and the reservoir, in the return line, is this correct?

If you have a single pump system, not the dual pump set up, you want to locate the cooler in the return line after it comes out of the steering box and before the Tee fitting the HB feeds into which is in line to the pump/reservoir.

Finally finished my install last night. Rebuilt the MC and bleed the brakes. Couldn't believe how nasty the old fluid was in the master cylinder, looked like used engine oil. Took it for a test drive and I can't believe what a difference, like night and day! I can stop on a dime even with 35" tires. Thanks Elliot!

i have a 1972 wagoneer with all stock vacuum breaks. I would love to get one of your bolt in solutions for HB. I am guessing the astro unit with the correct bracket would be the way to go. would i need to replace the MC? i see that you spec down to 74 but not to 72. thanks.

You should be able to keep the stock MC since it's a vacuum MC meaning it will have a shallow dimple in the piston where the booster rod engages. I may have firewall mount already made so if you check your brake pedal let me know if the rod is on driver's (most likely) or passenger side of the pedal.

In most cases the 1300 psi pumps are adequate. You can always increase the performance if you think it is neccessary be 1) brazing a second return nipple onto your reservoir and elimiate the Tee fitting in the return line for the hydroboost, 2) replace your pressure relief valve with one from a 1500psi pump out of hydroboosted pre '80 chevy truck. You pedal will take the position #2 mount that I have in stock. I'll shoot you a PM with my address for paypal if paypal works for you.
Thanks,
Elliott
