They are still made new by Mercruiser (Outboard boat engine manufacture). Same part as was used by Chevy originally, and sold through Corvette restoration parts vendors (same part was used on the 1958-'82 Corvette).

Thanx for your replies....Problem solved while fussing with the connections I noticed the ram was bent.I found another cyl. that would work,not the same as the oem as the lines hook up on the cyl are vertical facing the crossmember,any way I got power steering,I'll keep looking for an oem cyl.
Thanx .......Ken .....new in 62

|Deadwolf||Their is a lengthy process outlined in the 1960 Chevrolet shop manual on purging the air and setting the slave cylinder and everything up. That would be a good place to start. I have never done it myself, but helped my Grandfather once and I seem to remember putting the front of the car on jack stands and turning the wheels from side to side a couple dozen times.|

steering 62 Impala
I wrote a lengthy post yesterday& can't find it . My user name is usually new in 62 I registered with my e mail I will correct this as soon as I can navigate this site. The reason for this post is my power steering is a mess.I ruined my control valve & replaced it from a popular vendor. I centered the valve & plumbed it up, got the valve to cylinder lines wrong.I also changed my pump to a newer type as it came in its own cage.I started the car & got a violent reaction on the steering wheel, enough to hurt my hand when the wheel got away from me. I changed my valve to cyl. lines,started the car & got side to side reaction on the steering wheel. As I'm writing this I realize I didn't purge the air from the unit,also I would like an opinion on my pump,I'm wondering if I need to lower the pressure? I should add that I put a seal kit in the cylinder I may have got something wrong here, not leaking tho.
I will thank anyone who responds in advance......Ken new in 62
