Cowl Steering 34 Ford BB

I am working on getting parts for my 34 BB with a speedway disk brake front end conversion.

I understand the things I need to do to achieve a cowl steer setup and I have the original 34 box. I have read that the 34 box is a little sloppy and hard to adjust. Are there any disadvantages to using it?

Also anyone know where to find a splined shaft for it so I can extend it through the cowl? Can I just weld some DOM onto the existing splines? then add the correct spline on the other end to attach to the drop pitman?

Also, if I don't want to use it, what is recommended?

cowl steering.

I ve seen some larger pickup boxes used, they have longer shafts, they turn them so the shaft points out instead of down, also I,ve seen extenders made. a large dia heavy wall tubing, lartge enough to get a nut and socket inside with the splined piece welded on the end. the out side endhass a ring with holes drilled and tapped to bolt on a custon arm. It might be in the Hamb site build picts. I would not weld on the splined end of the sector shaft. heat would ruin the seal and always be leaking grease.
