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.|

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

|chevota'54||Talkin to my older brother,seems like those S-10 manual boxs are sought after, everybody talks about the Vega & corvar boxs,but I dont see it.|

|BOBCRMAN@aol.com||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.|

|chevota'54||I gotcha' ya. I'm gonna hav'ta mount mine on the outside. Where I welded the spring hangers was right where the stock box was bolted to. at first I thought I could use trad. steering til I found out more about bump steer,you think a '55 style box about mid spring crossed over to the pass. side would be fairly smooth?|

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?|
