F1 rack and pinion

Has anyone tried the rack an pinion steering kit that bolts onto the straight axle? If some give me some comments on how it is working out. I am thinking about putting it on my 1951 F1 pickup.

uni steer

a uni steer is a better idea. my son's 36 coupe had the rack on the tube axle and we took it off, and are going to ifs. you would need some type of telescoping connection for the column or a Jag xjs wiggle joint to compensate for the movement of the axle up and down.

Harley, I have done this on a 56 Chevy truck, not a F1, but I'm sure the process is very similar. Pm me if you would like. Maybe I can offer something that will help.
