PS Line Routing 63 Impala

Anyone got a pic of the stock power steering line routing for a 63 Impala? I'm looking for the pressure and return line routing. Doesn't seem to be anything in the Fisher assy. manual or blue chevrolet shop manual on this.

Perhaps some can send me a pic of this if you have a stock setup?

As always help is appreciated.

Thanks,
msp177 (Mike)

I'm not sure which is the pressure or return line but here's a pretty good side view. Didn't have any from the top or bottom but can probably get some more. I had the fender wells off while upgrading the suspension. This is a 64 though, so someone will have to weigh in on if they shared the same setup.

Hey Gratefuldad, the pics help. I knew there was something strange about the routing of these lines. Going around the frame is an unusual way to pick up the slack for a hose that is too long, Ha, Ha, Ha. If you find more, please send. Perhaps you have some from the top down?

Pressure lines use fittings all the way whereas the non-pressure line will use a hose with clamp. Take a look at your P/S pump and the line coming from the back at the bottom will be the pressure line, folow the line and notice the fittings. The other line is a combination of hard line and hose connector....this is the non pressure line.

Hope this helps!

Hey mike, I'll check that out... Good info. I had a small leak in one of them (at a fitting) that self corrected so will have to go through it.

:cheers:

Here's a top down shot:
