Hotrod Power Steering info required

Hi I have recently finished building 1937 Ford Slantback Tudor Rod.The car was bought in Utah as a basket case and Shipped 12000 miles back to New Zealand. to be completely rebuilt. The rod has so far Collected 3 National Titles and Has been one of the Top 10 Hotrods at each event.As soon as I can find out how to post Pics I will do so. The Rod is at present using a Vega Manual Steering Box On a strenghened stock frame , with a Magnum dropped I beam on transferse spring setup.I now want to convert it to a Power Steering Box, can anyone sugest to what I can use.Thanks Ken. i HAVE NOW POSTED PICS OF MY CAR

I have seen a lot of people use the 85 Toyota 4X4 steering box. It has two hydraulic lines going to the box. It's an easy setup. One line goes to, most people use the GM Power steering from a late model car, and the other line is the return line to the box. That's it. You may have to do some fabrication with the linkage, pitman arm, draglink etc. But it would be an easy way to set up power steering. Here is an article on boxes that may help as well.

Power steering

Thanks Kleen 56, I guess the most difficult thing for me, is that my 37 is left hand drive as it should be but the country I live in unfortuneatley is all Righthand Drive, so getting anything here is impossible. I could try the US Hotrod suppliers for a power steering Box but they arnt cheap, trying to get a wrecking yard in the US to send me the correct unit might not be a good idea
