I like the sag change over, but I'm just going with the vacum booster. I gave the price range for anyone interested. I read your thread on the sag and thought it very helpful. My wish list is growing and I guess if my p/s unit goes out, I'll look at doing that swap. The steering unit you went to, did you say it gave you better (easier) steering? What about the ratio? Same or a little quicker?

I think the saginaw pump is a more heavy duty pump

It's a stronger power steering pump, no gear ratio changes or anything. Since it does pump more fluid and faster, the steering wheel became VERY easy to turn, easier than my Honda Civic. I can turn my wheel all the way over at a stand still with my pinky...without my engine moaning at me like a cat in heat.

Lololololololol Perfect description for it. I'm sure my pump hates life now on 31's and I'm sure it will cry at 33's+

I went by the dealer today to pick up a FL-1HP oil filter and just ask for the prices for a booster and M/C. $160 for the M/C and $240 for the vacum booster. Rockauto is going to get some new business. Booba, I know the brake lines will not match up to F350 boostand m/c and you didn't change lines. What method did you use to match lines and m/c?

Mine screwed right into that master cylinder with no problems at all. I didn't have to change anything.

But you did have to pull them forward a little bit didn't you? Thats considering the greater thickness in booster would put m/c forward by about 3-4 inches. Just looking at mine this morning, it appears the Bronc trans cooler has different lines from the cooler for about a foot. Yard said $35 for cooler and no charge for lines except for time it takes one of their guys to remove them. I would, but Bronc is sitting on the hubs.

Couldn't do much today. Our two yr old foster son is sick so I had time to do a little research and look more closely at my truck. I see where the trans cool lines go to radiator and a hose connection to line going to tranny. Odd that the factory would make just a simple connection on the line, but that is where you put the aux tranny filter(Booba). So I see no problem in me getting the lines off. I thought I would have to go to the tranny. Oh yes, what I meant by quicker ratio on your steering, you showed a new steering gear(mounts on frame) on your sag write up. I'm assuming it had the same ratio but is there one with a quicker ratio than stock.(less turns of steering wheel to go full travel, left or right. Our stock unit does pretty good, but yes for p/s it is hard to turn with my index finger. I also noticed today as I walked by truck running, you can hear that p/s noise. I believe I'll look into that swap. Thanks for all the info and input. Frank

I ordered the dully wheel cylinders first and got them yesterday. I don't know if I can wait for the right cash for boost and M/C before my frt pads get to thin. I was in a yard the other day and looked at a 99 F350. The vacum hose on the boost is on drs side so I don't think that will work but what about the M/C? It has the big resivior[sic] and also has the brake switch. Is any problem using the 99? Can you remove the brake switch and just screw in a bung(I think that is the correct word for it) providing you can find one the correct size. if so would it need to have some kind of sealent on it? One m/c looks like another for the most part. The 99 F350 did have a size stamped on it. Like 1 1/8 or something like that. Just curious. I can get the m/c cheaper that way than a new one. I know I type a lot, but I want the reader to know I have either read their post and or I've tried to think this thru before I ask some stupid question. It may not help but I try!

Thanks to my wife getting her unemployment I'm back on my quest to get the rest of the parts for F350 swap. I got the EBC greenstuff pads yesterday and was looking on rockauto and they no longer carry the Motorcraft m/c. What I'm finding else where is around $80-90. I'm also seeing different bores and inlet/outlet sizes. What is the correct size I need? Hoping to soon get this done so I can move on to another project.

1993 F150 XLT, 5.8 with E40D, Tow and Handling Package. Fully loaded from factory as truck was special order. Mods: Extang Snap on bed cover. 2" drop in rear, Six Liter Tuneup, NOS 66-72 Ford Air Foil Antenna, Planet Auto Red Ford Oval (grille). Diamond Clear Headlight Package, Bumper Guards, F350 Brake Conversion, Slotted/Drilled Front Rotors, 3 row alum radiator with Mk VIII elec fan. and much more to come!
