    Power Steering Swap

    I recently purchased a 87 Dodge Ram 50 2.0 5sp. It had manual steering when I purchased it. I bought a complete power steering setup from a 88 mighty max. I have everything installed but I am having to issue's.. First the power steering belt hits the fan pulley routed around the fan or routed below the fan pulley. Second problem is the power steering pulley sits about a quarter inch farther away from the motor than the crank does so putting on a belt it would be riding at an angle.. Are the crank and fan pulley different tfrom the two vehicle's? Thanks for the input!!

    I'm looking to buy them both if anyone has them for sale. No one in the salvage yards have them or locally I can't locate them.

    Hate to bring this back from the dead, but does anyone have a picture of the ps rack fitment?

    I'm planning to do this on my mm but the mounting points don't seem to line up. I realize the rack will mount on the opposite side of the frame, but there are spacers where the bolts come through.
