tmorgan4 Posted June 21, 2008 Author Share Posted June 21, 2008 Thanks again for the comments. Really makes all the hard work worth it in the end! I really decided to put in the full hydro steering while I was doing the engine for a couple reasons. 1) I already had the engine out, and plenty of room to work with. This was VERY nice when I had to weld on the mount for the steering valve onto my cute little car frame. 2) I was planning on going for a solid axle up front sometime in the "near" future, so this gets rid of a whole 'nother step I have to do when the axle goes in. The ram will need to be transferred to the new axle, get some longer hoses to allow some droop of the axle (the ram stays stationary where it is now, it will be moving up and down with the new axle) and make some longer tie rods. 3) Since the engine was out, I had a chance to make a mount for the PSC pump a lot easier than I could have done in the car. 4) The threads on the oil filter housing (where your oil filter screws onto) hit the stock steering box. If this was the only issue then it could have been remedied a whole lot easier than going to a new steering setup. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
