    Land Rover steering box on a LHD rod ?

    Seem to recall that a Land Rover RHD steering box can be made into a LHD. Thinking of using this idea on my '32 but not sure how to do it. Anyone rodders on here done this or know how it's done ?

    Thanks for any help you can give, Kim
    High tec rods.....elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.

    The reason it works is that with the pitman arm on the inside of the chassis in its original application, it puts the pitman arm on the outside of the frame on a LHD chassis (see [email protected]'s pic). Imagine that arm on top of the chassis is a steering arm on your LH spindle, and you can see that pushing it forward will push the wheel to the left, exactly what you want for a side-steer set-up.
