The Corvair steering box doesn't lend itself well to cowl mounting because you will have have a special machined double splined shaft to extend it beyond the body. Go to a tractor wrecking yard and look at some of the older Ross units, even the Mitsubishi tractors have some boxes with long pitman shafts.

I am building a modified lakester roadster w/27 T body. What you need is what I need, a sprint car steering. Schroeder is the most popular today though there are others. You can find them on eBay if you look under race car parts/steering. Frankland, KSE, Schroeder and others are available for around 250 bucks. Schroeder has a website where you can customize the position of the steering wheel etc. New is around 550 bucks.

bigjoe is using a Ford pickup box. I am not sure how he will mount it or what arm he will be using. Perhaps you can PM him and find out. Here a link to his journal:
