1969 460 help

I have a 1969 lincoln 460..it is in a 34 ford frame...steering is a manual rack and pinion setup (dont ask)...My question is this...behind the crank pulley is the power steering pump..it is bolted to the front of the engine similar to a chevy water pump on a small block....but i dont need it with the manual rack...how can i run the motor with out this thing? i dont think i can just run the motor with it on and not hooked up. (wont the pump seize up?) if i pull it off then the crank pulley is out a ways and i am afraid of crank flex and breakage...plus i think the seal is on the front of the pump...Any ford guys out there that can help? can email me at ajbcc2@charter.net too

You simply need to find a front cover from a regular production 460 of the period. This setup was used on the CONTINENTALS (not MARK)-

CORRECTION; Crank driven pump was on both CONT and MARK. I was thinking unique C6 on CONT (I think )

-only for those years (68/69).

Let us know how it turns out.

Oh, BTW. I am interested in the old setup.

The design is a continuation of the PS System from the older MEL Series. It also requires a remote reservoir. Plumbing would be fairly simple.

I forgot to mention that there is a crank collar that will replace the pump with the regular design belt driven PS that fits behind the balancer.

Is your engine out of a CONT or MARK?

Below is the system as shown on a 1966 462 MEL.

1969 460 help

I am not familiar that much with lincolns..but it was a real low roof looking version..looked like the roof was chopped in its stock form..I would like to say it was a 2 door so a mark version...
i pulled the plugs for the first time yesterday and with a socket on the crank it turned over easily..shot some oil into the cyls to keep them lubed...and ps fluid came out of a line so i know the pump still is ok..
question..if a power rack has two lines and the pump has one outlet line (2nd is a rubber hose from resevoir) how do i hook up a power rack?

If you look closely, you have the pressure (usually going to wipers) going to the box (rack in your instance), then a return from the box to the reservoir and then a large return from the reservoir to the pump.

DUH!...I should have looked at a unit before wasting that question.....i found a power rack under all my junk and it has feed lines for right and left coming out of where the steering column goes in going back into either side of the seal (I suppose to force the rack left or right) then there is one line by itself...I am assuming this line goes to the pump...hence one line from pump to feed rack and one line from resevoir for pump to maintain fluid..
anyways this is my first rod and its tough when you are not sure of WTH your doing...thanks for the help and comments they are appreciated greatly

It will make a cleaner FEAD. You will now need only a belt driven ALT and possibly AC compressor. Don't forget you can power a HYDRO-BOOST as well.

Keep us posted.

The braking system is actuated by PS pump generated hydraulic pressure vs the usual vacuum booster. Much more line pressure and no need for engine minimum vacuum.

You can find a suitable setup from an eighties CONT or later SN-95 MUSTANG.
