HELP, S.O.S, HILFE, HJÄLP!

Well lets settle down..

As i´m just about to get the car on the road, I tryed to mount the power steering box today, But that was one h*ll of a No-no!

It just doesent fit behind the headers, And i ruined the paint bigtime on both firewall and framerail while trying to fit the box to the frame..


So, what i need to know is what parts i need to convert, And pictures are VERY appriciated.

That i need a new steering rack is correct, Or?

Do i need to change the steering-wheel shaft? Please tell me no..


This just ruined all my chanses of driving my baby this season..

Just the box. No other change needed. I have one that I just switched to power. I suspect it will be costly to ship to Sweden from US. LMK if your interested.

Madsapper, Thank you for that! That means that NOTHING but the box has to be changed? It´s a direct fit?

I found a box here in Sweden for around 200$, about 250$ with shipping..

Could you perhaps tell me if the manual box is smaller than the powerbox? I guess it has to be though.

Thank you, And best Regards //Andersson.

Yes, only the box needs to be changed. I is about 2/3 the size of the Ford power steering box. Not sure on the size difference between the manual box and the saginaw power steering box.

I guess with that one my life would be easier, Now i had to make a bump in my new headers to make the car driveable..

Great thanks though, I´ll do the swap sometime when i have the money for a manual box..
