Power steering cylinders on a '67 270

Unread postby NobleTruths on Mon Sep 28, 2015 9:03 pm

1967 Travco 270 P375 w/ 318 motor.

I have removed the power steering hydraulic lines due to their poor condition and leaking. Having them rebuilt locally. While they are off, I figure I should address other related issues. The large hydraulic cylinder that connects to both wheels is also leaking where the piston enters the housing (see attached picture). I don't know the name of the cylinder or p/n, but does anyone know if it is rebuildable? If yes, any purchase source would be wonderful. Also, the bushings on their end could use replacement. Any p/n on those?

The smaller cylinder that the 4 lines attach to (see picture) is not leaking, but I could rebuild that while I am at it, if anyone has a p/n for that....and its bushings, too. I have no idea if I should rebuild the PS pump or any other components. Thoughts?

I read that ATF is used for the PS fluid. Is that correct? DexIII, or something else? And what ATF is used in my transmission?

Thanks.

Dodge P/N 2084329 is recommended but no longer available.
From what I read, ATF is not recommended for this paticular application (attacks seals and hoses)
Far as I know you can use Prestone Power Steering Fluid & Stop Leak
