power or manual mustang rack
Maybe you guys can help me decide on power or manual steering for my 59 rambler project. I'm not sure how much the car will weight when completed , but around 2800 lbs is probably close. The front tires are 195/50/15, and the number one spark plug will be just behind the cross member centerline when finished. The motor is a late model LT1 from a 1994 firebird, so it already has the power steering pump, but I don't know what pressure this system operates at or what the requirements are for the mustang system. The car would probably steer fine with a manual rack, but power would be nice especially since I already have the pump. If I don't use the pump I'll have to mount some sort of delete pulley in it's place, because this motor uses a serpentine belt. Any input is welcome and greatly appreciated. Thanks.
