Been wrestling with this issue...

1. Using a serpentine drive off a 93 Vette on a Gen 1 350 Engine
2. All components fit...
3. Made two braces for the lack of mounting lugs to tighten up any lateral movement of AC Compressor and made a support bracket for the Smog Pump (smog delete bracket is not available at Summit...EPA)
4. Decided to go with PTFE line for the pressure side with adapter fittings from "O" ring stype fitting to 6-AN
5. Using the stock Steering Pump Pulley creates an issue! Its about 7 inches in diameter...after putting in the adapter fitting and using a 90 degree fitting on the line...the pump pulley cannot be pressed in where it belongs, as the pulley will rub on the line fittings (the original hose had a 2 - 180 degree turns in the pump attach end that would allow the needed space for the pulley to be pressed in place. Have tried different combinations...none work.
Do I have to get a hose with bends like pictured (copied photo from another post) in order to clear the pulley??? Auto part Wood Antique tool


6. I need a line at the pump with the "O" ring to an Inverted flare at the steering box (CPP 500 Box) IF that exists.

Thanks in advance...

the o-ring flare is called a saginaw fitting. You should be able to use a regular line as your photo shows to snake around the pulley, and convert the saginaw to inverted flare at the pump. Or, have a short piece of hard line bent up that has the appropriate ends to tie into that hose assembly. You could also use the hard line with the saginaw fitting, cut it off where you can put an inverted flare union, or convert right to AN.
