47 Chevy steering

Have a 47 Chevy with a 3.1 Camaro engine, need to find a power steering grear box that will bolt on the frame, with or without an adapter, and a pitman arm, (engine has the pump, don't want to have to figure a way to run the belt without the pump). Will use the Camaro column, no one makes a kit for this car!

On the '47 Coupe I'm doing, I decided to put a '92 4.3 V6 from an S-10 Blazer in it with the S-10 rear end and steering column. In looking at the front end, I figured the only way to go was to put a Mustang II IFS under it, which I'll start in a week or so.

It looks to me like a regular gear box would be more trouble than it was worth, and the $1665.00 I paid for the IFS was money well spent. This includes factors like the difficulty and expense of having to rebuild the existing front end.

Front end

I agree with you about the front end, mine has been completly rebuilt, I was told a cradled power rack & pinion might work, will look into that, don't have the money for a Mustang 11, Thanks for the info.
