Anyone knows where or who can rebuild the power steering pump/ restore it? I had it in a bucket and water got in the bucket.

Napa has them, but it may not be a 100% exact match. I bought one from them and the low pressure nipple is in a different location. Marty would catch it but I doubt anyone else would notice.

This guy will rebuild your pump, or you can buy the parts from him and rebuild it yourself. They are very simple devices.

I bought the 1970 gas tank for the extra capacity. Yesterday I was looking at the fill pipe and realized that i have to remove the tail light panel Again!

I did this mod on my Highland Green car. Don't forget the '70 fuel sender as well.

I need it calibrated first this time! I had so much trouble with the other unit.

I have to tweak mine as well. I put 2.5 gallons in the tank, and the gauge didn't move at all. I drained the tank, bent the float arm a tad and now it does come off the Empty mark. I'm going to add another 2.5 gallons and then see what the gauge reads. If it then reads 1/4 tank with 5 gallons in the tank I'll be happy.
(The FULL/EMPTY resistance readings were OK prior to the initial install.)

Which one? The large one that feeds the lights or the small one that goes to the engine sending units?
The large one connects under the dash near the headlight switch.

IIRC, there are 4 connectors at the left side, accessible through the (removed) A/C-Heater control panel, and through the (removed) instrument cluster area. Then pull forward though the firewall. I just replaced that main harness on my Highland Green project car.
