The project: I am about to take on a power steering conversion project for my '76 CJ-5 with a 304. I am pulling the parts off of an '80's CJ that had a 258 engine in it. Everything from beyond the firewall should be a bolt-on job, but...

The problem: can I reuse the power steering bracket from the 6 cylinder engine and bolt it onto the 8 cylinder engine, or is it a different bracket configuration? I'm looking for a bolt on solution, not going to weld anything.
Anyone know where I could buy the correct bracket if the one I have from the 258 will not work? I cannot seem to find it online.

Thanks for the help!!

No the 4.2 pump bracket will not work on the 304. The pump should be fine.

The v8 bracket looks like this.


Have to hit the junk yard (304 or IIRC the 360 will also fit) or ebay.

Thanks for the heads up... Looks like this will be more of a challenge than I initially thought as it proves to be a tough one to find. Thanks.

Vehicle(s): Right now, only one '76 CJ5. 304 with a three speed stick. Everything else is pretty much stock 'cept for a 4" suspension lift. Came to me with a back breakin' 4" suspension lift attached to a reverse shackle setup (Reversed the reverse shackle crap and now she rides like a Caddy!) Also posess a few 60s & 70s Mustangs and a couple of late 70's F150s 4X4s.

I think you'll do better hittin' the bone yards and look for anything with a 304 or 360 in it.

I picked ebay apart a while ago and didn't come up with anything for ya.

Good luck! If you don't find something soon, add another post and I'll see what luck I have around west central GA.

I just picked up all of the components (except for the bracket).
If anyone has or finds an extra, let me know!

Does anyone have access to a spare Belt tensioner bracket? I just broke mine and can't find anyone that sells it.
