Also a good writeup on "Ford Muscle Forums"
Not sure if it was in the Falcon pages or General Tech.
Pictures and pretty much step by step going into a 64/5 Falcon.
I would imagine the Mustang (64/5/6/7 would be the same

Electric Power Steering for less than $200
I recently installed electric power steering in a 1966 Mustang. I did not use a kit, I simply pulled a column style EPS from a newer GM vehicle and then spliced the unit into the original steering column.
The results far exceeded my expectations and the cost was less than $200. I designed a controller that automatically adjusts assist level based on vehicle speed, so that the steering feel is "just right" regardless of speed.
I documented (with pictures) how I went about this on a Vintage Mustang forum. If anyone is interested do a google search for "Best $200 mod ever (EPS)" or follow this link to page 7 where the details start:

Your post interested me because I'm thinking of converting to power steering in my 1948 Plymouth. At this point, I'm just researching the forums to figure out the best way to do it. I've not seen an electric PS pump before and don't know anything about them (until now, with your information), and the idea intrigued me a bit. Now I can take a look at those pumps and maybe get some ideas. Thanks again.

hey oldguy 48 not that old though ??
ok well i posted it in case it gave some of you heavy footed yanks some ideas . over here we are all crammed on this island and dont have the route 66 to drive. i think the longest stretch we have is the m1. maybe 150 miles at a push
i havent got any room for power steering so i brought this electric pump and adapted it to run its electonics being pcp board , proccessor and capacitor through my wiring. i also will fit a 2 stage voltage unit to resist the current and slow it down to reduce the pressure when on the motorway ( free way ) and also can turn it off if needed ,
not sure what else you would like me to post ? any questions ?
its from a citreon picasso and the renaults also use them . over here though . cost me £70 in all to buy and fit .
just serach on ebay for "citreon electric power steering pump " they range from £40 to £190
cheers for the post , shaun
