How do you plan to add fluid?

I have an EDSEL owner on another board that is replacing his pump. He will take photos but it may be a few days.

I have a stock reservoir on the pump & I have that same mounting bracket u posted "Kultulz". I plan to add fluid via the cap. Thanks for that pic by the way.

Thanks for the pics as well Bart, my pump is wrong. The bracket, pulley, and reservoir all loook right, but my Eaton pump's actual casting is different....

Here are a few more pics:

Jon:

You might need to fill that space so that you have 3 points against the bracket -- just a thought.

Yes Bart, that is a threaded through hole in my pwr.steering pump. Does ur 430cid pwr. steering pump have 3 mounting points to the bracket?

Yes it does.

On mine, where you are missing that area, I have a flange that contacts the bracket (see below) no bolt. This makes a tri-pod contact area for the pump. That contact point needs to be there because the belt tension is pulling the pump againt it. Might crack the pump housing.

If that hole is threaded, I would use a bolt through that hole untill it contacts the bracket face. This way, it would take some of the pressure off of the other two bolts.
