Power steering set-up for headers or hipo

Time to share again...
On the subject of headers or hipo exhaust manifolds for 289 or 302 engines, the big block power steering bracket and the 2 piece pressure hose was brought up.

I have had the HiPo exhaust manifold on my car for 20 years, and had many problems with the power steering pressure hose getting burned by the manifold or kinking that it cut off fluid. The simple solution is to get the big block P/S hose bracket, which bolts under the lower control arm. It is available from many Mustang catalogs as well as the two piece pressure hose set up. This is a priceless set up for solving the problem. In 1969, I do believe that all Mustangs were equipped with this set up. I have included some pictures to show you people what it looks like. If you have headers I think you will still need the drop adapter for clearance of the slave cylinder.
