I've got a '65 with a 289 and it's got a power steering pump with an angled shaft where the dipstick goes in. I've seen a lot of other 289's where that shaft isn't angled. I know there are 2 power steering pumps available for that engine - the Eaton and the Ford pump. Is that what the difference is? Does it matter which one I replace it with?

As long as the hydraulic fittings and the bolt patterns are identical, you can use either one

The pressure hose show to be different between a Ford and Eaton pump, so you could use either pump with the matching hose. It sounds like you have a Ford pump for use with A/C. The catalog shows 2 Ford pumps, a slanted neck for use with air and a straight neck for no air.

Here is some info from Virgina Classic Mustangs on-line Catalog

Thanks for the info!

The car actually doesn't have A/C, but I think this is the final proof I needed to say that it did at one point. I guess someone removed the A/C before I bought it it 10 years ago . It had a center console that didn't go all the way up to the dash and it also has the 2 holes in the firewall where the A/C lines would go. I guess I need to look at either adding A/C back in ($$$) or converting to a total non A/C setup.
