    here we have a 70's Chevrolet c10 etc pick up steering gear box, basically a Saginaw 525 steering gear, but with the mounting bosses on the other side.
    right hand input worm and nut. sector shaft spline size is 1 1/16 - vega is 1'', power steering is 1 1/8 - note-the small gm 605 power boxes are 1 1/16''

    It has been fitted with a 70's Chevrolet corvette input worm, from the long sector Saginaw 525, its ratio is 16-1 - short stub input @ 30 splines 3/4'' fat

    it has a 1970's Chevrolet Camaro pitmann arm, these are 6'' on centres (they are available 7'' from the 605) it has a 1/2 inch drop, and stock takes the 7 degree taper
    similarily used on early ford tie rod ends

    one turn of input = 65mm or 2.5 inches of travel, so lock to lock is 2 turns, which is nice.

    note to self, you need a 7/8ths seamless tube 4.88 wall tie rod at 30.5 inches long, drilled 5/8ths and tapped - 3 stage tapped, 11/16 - 18tpi

    steering wheel like the white one any colour as long as its not completely fackered, don't mind cracks but not toasted
    also need the indicator switch
    also need the 3 hole washer that holds the switch into the bell
    will take a 2 1/4 column drop
    need a bit of 3/4 steering shaft 3/4 36 splined each end at 10 inches long
    plus a 3/4 36 to 3/4 36 u/j
    need a 6.5 '' pitman arm from a 1981 Camaro
    need a single water pump pulley 289/302
    need 1 302 1968 power by ford valve cover
    need a fox upto 1993 for 9 1/4 input shaft bearing cover clutch release bearing guide tube
    need one m12 helicoil

    does anyone on here have a plasma table running sheetcam tng and mach 3 or 4 that I can match my version of sheetcamm to your machine and send you files.


    what top rad hose on a 302 with an upright mstang thermostat housing to a central rad - is there something close off the peg
    also a lower hose about 100 degrees

    want a little hei for 302
    phenolic spacer
    is there a simple way of running serpentine belts on a stock rotation early 302 using a later serp lower pulley

    here is one to watch out for
    t5 front bearing retainers ford and chevy

    chevy size is 4 5/8ths

    ford size is 4 7/8ths

    so you can't use that factory hydraulic bearing from a 1996 Camaro in a ford bell housing unless you fit a 1/8'' ring/ spigot
