34 ford Woodie

I am in the process of gathering the parts for a 34 Woodie with Jaguar XKE front and rear suspension. I need a manual rack for the steering. Does anyone have a suggestion?

34 Woodie

I remember seeing something about Unisteer building custom racks. You may want to check with them. Years ago I shortened a MII manual rack 8 inches for my Willys. Not a hard job but you have to have a machinist that knows what he is doing.

I hang out in a machine shop on the weekends. That is where I am building the car. In fact, It is where Zips water pumps are made. Zip developed a water pump housing that will raise your water pump and get is close to the center of the radiator in a hot rod.

chassis design

About 20 years ago I had a neighbor that was a retired machinist that built custom frames-chassis for Model A ford that used the torsion bar front and rear XKE suspensions . The rack will depend on your track width you use, XKE uses a front high mount rack. M II uses a low front mount That would be the first place I would look. Ford use the MII basic design with wider tracks in other vehicles.
