I'm old, so maybe my memory is going also....?????

You would think they would be all over that deal. How often can you sell a man a coffin?.............twice.

Since this thread was started 5 years ago. We have opened a T Bucket shop and we make a cowl steering kit. We have sold several to guys building coffin cars already. Here are a few pics of how it is done. A flanged hub is made, with splines to fit the steering box, leaving enough room to install a lock washer and nut. Then the extension is machined and cut to length. Then the hole is made in the body. The shaft is cut to length and then the pitman arm is welded on. Contact phone # 865-932-7541
