Re: Power Steering Pump 1962 Dodge Polara 500



Looks like Straight Line Steering in San Jose is really set up for Mopars.  Hundreds of photos and they have a shop in River Side also.  So they should be really set up for a good service.

We shall see.  I may systematically rebuild everything now that we are coming into Fall and Winter with Spring months away.

Thank you again.

Thanks for the updates David & the input from all.

I noticed that big parts chains like RockAuto apparently will use a national steering pump source like Lares.

https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/dodge,1962,polara,6.3l+383cid+v8,1413313,steering,power+steering+pump,7380

https://www.larescorp.com/

1962 Dodge "B" on Rock Auto has only two steering pump possibilities listed but a 1973 Charger has about 7 Lares versions.

I suppose if you stick with what you have and get it back in shape you will know it is the correct part. :)

Dealing with smaller vendors often works out smoother is one perspective.

Thanks,
Gary H.
