Power steering became available as a factory option in 1956

A crack can be seen on both sides of the housing

The housing fell off in two halves when the bolts were removed

I used JB Weld to put the halves together

Then I located a used unit with a good housing

So we'll never know if the repair would have held

The steering pump in pieces

The steering fluid tank after cleaning and painting

The pump with hoses back on and ready to install

The hydraulics needed a good cleaning

I took all the inards out for cleaning but only took this picture?

Reassembled ready to paint

Ready to install
