    Yes they bolt right in place of the old box, like Bob and Elwenil have mentioned. The only problem you will have is the shaft between the column and the box. On the 880, the rag joint is down by the box, while the '92 has the rag joint up by the steering column. You will have to buy an aftermarket shaft, or make one yourself. I have pics of the one i made if your interested.

    Thanks, I dont have an m880, yet! But I will keep the extra parts off the parts truck, just in case I do get one someday. Power steering would be real nice.

    I have the 1990 tug and I'm considering putting that engine in an M880, or an M1008. Too many ideas...

    Finally put the PS on the plow truck last week, and gave her a new coat for the winter.

    Hey Bob, while on the subject of power steering, I have a 77 d-100 parts truck with all the power steering set up. Will this fit my m-893 ambulance?? Same year just a d-200 instead of d-100. Thanks.

    Should be a direct swap of the steering box (leave the pitman arm on the steering box), and bolt on of pump.

    You can buy a new power steering gear for 77 w200 reasonably. Power steering pump and brackets from junk yard, new power steering hoses and in 2 or 3 hours have 1 finger steering. Easy project. Hardest part was getting Pitman arm off manual steering gear. 77 power steering gear is definitely different from newer ones and will eliminate a lot of work.
