Cargostar Power Steering Gear

Recommended Posts

I've got a 1974 Cargostar 1810B with the SV392 engine and air brakes.  Manual steering, and man what a bear to drive in the city.  I've got to navigate tight parking lots, bay doors and yards every time I use this truck, and it's damn hard work.  I've got respece for the men that drove these in the 70's.  Anybody know where I can find a power steering gear and pump setup for this truck?

I found a used box which is a Sheppard 292.  But not sure which pump and bracket I'll need to mount on a 392 with air brakes.  I suppose I could just make my own, but who knows if I'll need a different steering shaft, coupler, etc.

Here's a shot of my manual steering gear, which mounts inside the frame with the steering linkage on the outside.

Hello,

Just wondering if you ever made any headway on power steering for your 1850B. I am looking to do the same.

Thanks

I just attended a truck show today and saw one of these 1850B's with power steering- wish I took a pic for you. I have been looking for a Cargostar with air, manual and diesel for a long time now. You are indeed a lucky chap! Greg
