pacer rack and pinion in 1939 chevy truck

Hi, looking for article or articles on how to install pacer steering and front suspension in a 1939 chevy truck. any help appreciated. I bought a 39 chevy truck that has most of this project completed but not completely, one of the issues is how to attatch pacer rack to crossmember, I think I read article on doing this a number of years ago, thanks again

the pacer front end was popular in the 80s for ease of install
at 77 inches wide i think it would be a poor choice under a 39 truck
first see if you can buy the parts to rebuild the pacer front end.
the rack is pacer only, i believe the lower ball joints are too.
just because you have it doesn't mean you should use it.
