Wasn't someone here talking about using Granada slave cylinders on '65-'70 Mustangs? I seem to recall they're saying they have superior sealing at the line fittings?

I'd appreciate any info, as I'll be rebuilding my system soon.

Here's what I was looking for:

Don't know if the '72 control valve has the O-rings though.

Of course you'll neeed ned PS lines with the O-ring type connections. Easy enough to have made....or use Granada lines as I did!
FWIW,

Yup Steve, that was me. Actually I was talking about the PS control valve, but I also used the Granada PS power cylinder as well.

FWIW, I ended up using a Granada 6 cylinder pressure line. It fit perfect in my '67. I can get you the manufacturer/part number if you need it. Bought it at Advance Auto Parts. I also uses a Granada hose for the low pressure return line.

I only have 500 miles on my car now, but no leaks at all and I expect it to stay that way due to the O-Ring conneciotns.

Are the slave cylinders different than the Mustang's, also?

I'd appreciate the numbers and/or application, if it's no trouble, thanks!

Ok, now you have my curosity going. What power steering parts from the Granada will interchange with the Mustang? I'm specifically interested in what can go into a 68 model.

So far, the slave cylinder, lines, and the control valve.

I may just stick to the Mustang stuff, since my local parts place wants more for the Granada stuff than NPD wants for the Mustang stuff.
