04-01-2007 08:56 PM Steering Box Install
I'm using a covair box to keep with the old school theme. I reversed it and had to do some stupid screwing around to make it fit because of the close proximity to the header port and the firewall. I didn't want any universal in the steering column so it took a bit longer to get it right. Made my own column out of a piece of stainless and a couple of bearings and have a quick release on the steering so getting in is a breeze,> Got the parts for the rebuild on the box from Clark's, but I steel need another bearing and they didn't have it in Stock. Does anyone know where I could find this?

Plugged in the battery charger and within 10 minutes you could start seeing some bubbles being produced around the steel bars and from the center. I let the piece sit overnight in the solution and pulled it out the next day. I was pretty clean, 20 seconds with a stainless hand brush and I was ready for self etching primer. I think I'm going to try to make a larger container and try to do some larger pieces.

I am using a small 3 amp trickle charger i bought at a garage sale for a couple of bucks still unsure of not blowing myself up. I took the rusty master cylinder that I will use for my clutch slave and you can see how rusty it is. Put a piece of stainless tig rod to it and connected the negative battery charger post on it and submerged it in the water being sure not to touch the outside electrodes.

Was reading a article in a rodding mag about removing rust with wash soda and a battery charger and decided to try it to see if it worked. Got a 5 gallon pail and clipped six pieces of 3/8" steel rod I had lying around and connected them with some copper wire. Added 2 gallons of water and 4 tablespoons of wash soda, found mine at Canadian Tire in the swimming pool supplies purchased it for $ 4.00.

We finally got into our first car show, minus my truck due to my illness, looks alright and we have a graveyard team and some of the biggest are buried. Boyd, Jimmie Shine, Jesse James and Paul Tuttle Senior.
