Can anyone provide feedback/pictures for making a bracket to mount a mini-truck power steering pump to a 2F. I'm running a later 2f with the holes drilled for ps, but I need ideas on how to fab a bracket to allow for adjustment.

Thanks. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

You could use a stock Toyota brackets and pump from an FJ60. Alternatively, I found that you can modify the 22R 4 cyl bracket from a 79-85 truck to fit the PS mounting holes on a 79 and up 2F. Both require relocating the air pump to a lower location to avoid interference with the PS pump. If you are interested in the modified truck bracket, I can post some pictures.

Yeah,

Some pictures would be most helpful - Thanks. No smog pump anyways. I've already got all the parts from a mini-truck, so I just need a better idea on how to make the bracket. I might try and find a 22R bracket, but after seeing how one fits it'll probably be just as easy to fab something up.

Are you running the mini-truck gear? If so, what size tires are you running? I've got 33's and hope to go to 35's early next year after getting some sort of low-gear tranny in (next project).

Thanks again.

If you are not running the air pump, then the easiest thing to do is to mount an early 80s (80-85) Tercel pump on the old air pump bracket and just flip the pully so that it lines up with the old air pump belt. This will just bolt on and the pump puts out enough pressure to (reportedly) handle 35 inch tires. If you don't have the air pump belt on, then the 22R bracket probably won't work because it uses the alternator belt and you need something to run your water pump. Here is a picture anyway, just in case. The lower bolt hole in the original 22R bracket lines up perfectly with the front hole in the 2F and positions the pully correctly to work with the alternator belt. I drilled another hole in the bracket and cut off the front part of the 22R bracket since it interfered with the air pump belt. I took the bottom front arm of the bracket and welded it on the top to hold the front of the pump. The pump shown is from an 85 with the remote reservior. The attached reservoir model will fit also, but the reservoir will be about 1 inch from the exhaust manifold. Not cool.
