Anyone have 54-56 Ford Front Frame Pictures?

Hey fellas,
I'm looking for 54-56 Ford front end pictures where the steering linkage is if anyone has them. I am interested in the mounting locations for the steering box and idler arm bracket. I also need the distance between the frame where these two components bolt up and the length of the center link. I am trying to see if I can make Fatmans Rack & Pinion kit for the 54-56 Ford work on my T-bird with maybe a little modification. I have some other ideas also but i'm trying to look at all possible options before I decide what I am going to do. One good thing is that I have another 60 Tbird up on a rotisserie so I can mock up my steering system on that before I put it on my other one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have the service manual. I'm not sure if the dimensions are in it but I'll look. If they are I'll try to scan and post for you. I will hopefully be beginning to work on a 54 ford 2dr sedan. This one will be for me. The one I have pictures of posted is my father in laws. I have spent 12yrs building this one. I'm not going to build mine as "pretty". I think I want to go with the rock a billy rat rod look. Clean, minor customization, flat black, tail dragger. Dog dish hub caps and trim rings. Well anyway I'll let you know. Brian

Gonna send this and see how it looks, I may have to magnify it.These are the frame deminsions for a 54 ford as you will note the frames for the coupe sedan and convertible look to be all the same. Hope this helps.Brian

Well I hope it helps. It is from the 52-54 ford service manual. That frame is from the 54 section. Good luck let me know how it turns out. Post some pictures if you can. Only a few more weeks til I get my new project. Brian
