Called this afternoon. The new pully is on and he is ready to leave and head west to his place in Idaho. He also mentioned that he had a few of these unobtainum parts made- just in case.

what I was confronted with when I opened the front @ Mr. Taylors shop. Cut belt is in there for alignment checking. Roughing in the piece on the turning center. Mr. Taylors short course race truck sans body, getting cleaned and inspected after the event @ Joliet IL last week, race was on Speed Channel. Mr. Taylor @ the turning center and the finished product. Thanks to Rick Sawyer for the specs that greatly reduced the time required to replace my lost pulley, and thanks to the forum members who called with offers of assistance, greatly appreciated.
This is deal on upgrades. The prototype is cut from 4130, real hard and heavy, not practicle for production @ a reasonable price. Plan is to make a steel hub with aluminum hard anodized pulleys to upgrade older FC to later configuration, slow the pump a little and drive with twin belts. Probabably get it done for a couple hundred bucks a unit with a run of two dozen parts. If interested PM me @ mhohnstein@wi.rr.com. I'll be heading out from WI AGAIN tomorrow so we will gage intrest when I get back in a couple weeks.
For those that are curious, I lost the pulley outside of Sturgis, by the time I got to WY line decided to head back, too much armstrong steering. It was ugly as there was a hard north wind and I had to keep the wheel cranked to the left, 1000 miles of white knuckle driving I'll tell you. Love your power steering, It's your friend. The last image shows the sump I use, note the short supply line, pump likes it, no cavitation.

Nice job Mike. I think this is what it's coming too. We need to fend for ourselves. Luckily we have a bunch of talented folks onboard here at WOG. If parts are no longer available, or if vendors are unwilling to do it at a reasonable price; heck, we'll do it ourselves! It'd be easier if we had a standardized way of collecting and disbursing funds.

That looks like it will get the job done. Happy trails.

Thats a real success story. Rick Shawver measured the pulley on his SP and called Mike's cell phone to relay the numbers so the machinist would not be "making chips" (Mike's words). Networking at it's finest! Rick is one of my heros.

The PS pump on the 87-89 FC and on the SPs came with the larger diameter 2 groove pulley. On the face of my double groove pulley is the stamping "FOR BB PUMP ONLY" #9968.
Not sure about the shaft diameter on the PS pump on the earlier FCs. Still makes sense to try to slow the pump speed and the double sheave setup provides more traction...no more squealing from slipping PS belts.

Does anybody have information in their 'blue box' indicating the source (vendor) for PS pump used by BB on the SPs and late model FCs? I recall reading that the PS pump came from the vendor as an assembly which included the 'special pulley' stamped "FOR BB PUMP ONLY" #9968. I'll check my Blue Box this morning.

Default PS pump

On my Service Parts Sheet the vendor for the Power Steering pump is listed as Eaton #BB135R. A two pulley system, of course, with Gates #9415.
