There's nothing wrong with it. I just do not like the clutter under the hood. I doubt that there are any manual boxes for 88+. I think I'll just loop the power steering box and if I do not like it put the power steering back on.
My old 66 was manual steering, and it was a WORKOUT to try to paralell park.
My wife refused to drive it in town. I am SO looking forward to having power steering and (hydroboost) brakes, especially since I swapped out a 250 for a 454.
Manual boxes usually have more turns lock-to-lock AND have a larger steering wheel to provide more leverage. My guess is that this experiment may be short-lived?
