62 galaxie ps options?

I have rebilt the complete front suspension on my 62 galaxie resto and have to do the ps next.I replaced ball joints,tie rods upper&lower control arm bushings idler arm & center link and the steering is sloppy. I adjusted the steering box adjustments according to the ford shop manual and am thinking of going with a Wurth-it design R&P conversion kit. It would cost just as much to rebuild the leaky ram cyl and ps pump, any ideas? mike

That conversion would ruin your resto if you are going for authenticity. However, if you are after a nice stock looking daily driver, by all means investigate the R&P. Should be pretty easy to identify the source of your slop by crawling under the car and have someone move the steering wheel. The lose joint should stand right out.

The BENDIX P/S System is not that complicated to repair/maintain. Below is a Typical Installation showing most of the service parts. Notice the bushing kit at the end of the cylinder. It is small things like this (and proper setup/adjustment) that will make the system dependable and pleasurable to drive.
