    Hello I have recently purchased a 1947 ford gasser with a 350. It was a old racer back in the day. I have many AMC hot rods but always wanted a gasser. Since I never had one, it is becoming a learning curve about certain items on the car. One of them is the front suspension. It seems that it...

    I'm putting the steering back in my '67 Fairlane and if I torque the castle nut to spec (40 ft lbs) that holds the idler arm to the cross link it binds up and can't be moved by hand. It might be movable with the mechanical advantage of the steering wheel and steering box but it's way tighter...

    I was wondering if any one knows if GM makes a 7'' travel front steer rack and pinion. I have heard 85 Buick Century but not sure if it is front steer, any help would be appreciated. What have others used for power steering in a 33, I don't have the stock axel.

    I'm looking to convert my 1966 Mustang to a rack and pinion set up. Just doing some quick research there seems like there are a lot of different conversion kits out there. Does anyone have any insight on which one is the best? Also my mustang has a manual transmission with the factory clutch...

    I have a build that I have taken over and it has what appears to be a nickel plated SWEET mfg steering box. Which seems to be an expensive circle track style box....(this may be a dumb question) does it have to have a higher pressure circle track style pump for street only use?? Thanks, I ask...

    I recently acquired a 36 Chevy high cab pu . At some point a gm steering gearbox was mounted sideways but never hooked up because the rotation was wrong. After looking at all kinds of gear boxes it occurred to me that what would be simplest would be to reverse the input into this box. Do they...

    I have recently installed a ford power assist steering control valve and slave cylinder in my 38 Dodge. The tie rod end that goes into the steering arm is a little to big and I can only get the castle nut on about half way. My question is... Is this a 7.12 degree taper? I need to purchase a ream...

    When I built my 38 Dodge in about 2000, I grabbed a steering column out of the parts pile and installed it. It is a tilt column, with dimmer switch in it, pretty generic really. The problem arose when I lost my keys. I don't remember what the column came out of. It has the screw holding the...

    Hello all- I've read some of the previous posts regarding proper R-Rod geometry and found it all helpful. One answer I couldn't find is what rules govern the distance between the points where the rods connect to the frame? I am building a replica mid-20's Indy Racer (picture a Miller). I am...
