Post gremlin in my steering

I fitted a steeringcol off a Rover 800 series to my 43 chevy,everything went in great,i used the flexy jointat the steering box end,and fabricated u.j.s to fix the shaft to the base of the Rover colum.when i rotate the wheel i get a halt! then have to yank the steering wheel to get moving again.I"m on my own in the shop(no girraffes neck) so can"t see around the cab to see the problem! any ideas as to what"s up ....phil <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Could be, the reason its binding could either be the reason you sugested or the box itself, but I'd lean more towards the binding of a joint or the joint hitting against a frame rail or other componant. Like JM says get someone to turn the steering wheel while you look, or if its an open wheel car just jack up the front and turn the wheels by hand untill you get to the binding point and scope out the situation.
