'37 Buick steering

Friend, As an old streering teck, I always try to keep steering
components of the same make together, and avoid mixing brands
if at all possible.
If I were doing this project, I would explore the possiblility
of using the entire C10 steering assembly in total. As it is too
wide to use as is, I would undertake to narrow the crossmember
about 1'' and likewise the centerlink would be narrowed the
same amount. That way all components would work in
harmony as enginered to do. The C10 steering assembely you
have chosen does have a minor fault in its design. The
problem is that most of them do not produce enough
''toe out on turns.'' Here is an example; If you were to
turn the left wheel to the right 20 degrees, the right wheel
should turn to the right aproximately 22.5 to 23 degrees.
Most C10's wont do that but other wise they will last forever..
best wishes on your project.
