chevota'54 Hay Guys, jus got back from bike week in Daytona, INSANE, cant wait to get back to work so I can get some rest. Your getting closer everyday to seeing one MXrider13, when I started this ride, I was serchin for a Willys Coupe only I hav'nt won the Fl. Lottery yet. I've owend this '69 for 30yrs now,its been a show truck, low rider, drag racer, work truck,tow truck-Calf and back home a few times (thats when I was messin with sand cars) I was hopeing to have it ready for the Turky Run at the speedway,thats probly not gonna happen.We'll take the '54 and still have a good time.It'll be ready for the spring car shows tho.Not actuly period piece, but I like how its turning out.

s10 steering box mocked up

here is a pic of the s10 steering box mocked up. I made this a cross steer set up , im not a expert at this lol but it looks like it should work out fine and all lincages will be clear of the oil pan . The last piture shows how the rod end lines up to the steering box arm .

MXrider13 I would love to see a C10 Gasser, I don't see a lot of Gasser trucks unless it is a Willys.

steering box

yes i heard they wer getting hard to find. i bought this one about 6 years ago on ebay . I was looking at it and the car last nite i may wind up making a cross steer set up . that way it will work better .

chevota'54 You know on second thought, the search is the fun part.Probly does'nt matter much if it works.

Im not sure ? when I got my car it had the stock box the steering shaft wouldnt come out plus it had a ton of slop in it so i junked it it seemed bigger then what my s10 one is.
10-07-2012 09:40 PM I ended up using a Ford Mustang type box for my straight axle cross steer. Ford box puts the pitman arm further down to relieve the angle on the steering rod. See photo in my file.

s10 box

This is a pic of the manual S-10 box and steering shaft with the universals. This will mount onto the inside of the frrame rails I need to make a custom steel plate to bolt it to then to the frame rail i may have to change the small arm on the box but wont know for sure till i get the steering column mounted i mocked it up awhile ago with the old stock column and it looks like it should work , my orig plan was to buy a vega steering box but fig i would try to make do with what i had laying around 1st.

chevota'54 A S-10 box? Tradtional steering?Cant picture what that box looks like. I've got a box off a Astro I was thinkin about, came close to buying a box off a '66 Nova at the swap meet today,55bucs, but mount seem to low. I think a box off a '55 sedan is gonna be my best bet for cross steer.

im planning on using a flaming river plain jane steering column , I have a manual S-10 steering box from another project with a double u joint solid steering conection shaft that has a 1" D end that goes to the column. i mocked up the steering box when i was figuring the lenghth for the column it looks close to what i can use .

chevota'54 Good deal, love the 210s. What type of steering setup did ya use, did the stock '55 box work w/cross steer?
