does the pump with reservoir and remote reservoir mount the same way . thinking of going with remote but not wanting a lot of mods. 1987 k 10 with sbc:fiddle:

You talking about the remote reservoir like on a 454 or astrovan? Yes they do

Why not keep your reservoir pump and run Chrysler #4333475 boot to a remote reservoir?

Can you get that at Oreilly's? I can't seen to find it.

What is a part number for a remote reservoir off a chevy truck?

Glad you found it, as far as I know its a dealership new part only or used in salvage yard. Any reservoir should work, look for hydroboost 3/4-1 ton square bodies. I have a pretty slick reservoir from a land rover also.

I kept the stock resovoir, cut the neck off and welded a 1/2" npt bung in the too if it, then added remote resovoir off of that, worked great, was cheap, and holds even more fluid.

Heres my setup using the chrysler rubber to a gm van reservoir. 3/4 coupler between the two.

best I recall he has the same setup as Obijuan. I know he has drilled out the valve. I think his ram is the issue.. he is teaching Kungfu tonight, he will reply when he gets back online
