Mustang II power steering rack

I have a new Mustang II power steering rack, I need a splined u-joint to connect to my DD steering shaft, I cannot figure out the size of the gear box shaft or the number of splines. Help!

Sorry dude, don't take this wrong, but if you can't measure a shaft diameter or count splines, you're in over your head.

Check with Speedway or somewhere like that. Maybe do a search right here on HR.com.

Someone correct me but, I think it's something like 3/4-36 on the power unit and 9/16x? on the other one.

I could have looked it up but, so could you. Right ?

Go to http://www.borgeson.com and look under Steering Designing, then Splines. It shows how to count the splines. They also have a chart under Steering Designing, Popular spline and DD applications and there is a chart that shows what the shaft size and spline counts are. The power Mustang is 3/4" with 36 splines and the Manual is 9/16" with 26 splines. They also have a lot of other valuable shaft set up information.

Thanks for the help guys, except for Russ, I'll never understand why anyone would waste the time to give such an reply. Yes, I can measure the shaft but due to the flat areas on the shaft you cannot count the splines. Thanks again for the other responses that actually help.

Weld a coupling

on the shaft we raced that way for many years. I still do it. I have an old Borgenson universal for steering and has been on 5 race cars and sits on my shelf now waiting for a car.
