Follow this link. This is the guy who did my bodywork and they are installing a Coyote in a 73 vert. This details some of the changes required. He really likes modding cars so I am sure if you sent him an email or gave him a call he could offer some more pointers. His name is Allen Shepley.

Well... I have the front of my car on jackstands working on installing the roller perches and did a quick comparison between the JGC steering box and the bolt pattern on my 73. It does not look like the JGC box will fit. I need to do some more figuring to see if new mounting points could be added. At this point I'm pretty discouraged about the box upgrade.

If I can't make the JGC box work, I'll probably have Lee build a 12:1 box. I didn't want to spend that kind of money. It looks like 2 out of 3 bolts have a chance of lining up. Maybe all is not lost. I've never been afraid of cutting sh@t up. Big Grin

Past couple of posts, and I started checking more. I suspect I jumped before collecting all pertnant information on Saginaw boxes.
Now I'm purdy sure the box in the vert is a Variable, and now I know bout "Redhead's" existance.
Too late to check on their prices as we're into Holiday time.
Anyone have a guesstimate of $$ for a rebuild of the existing box.

$269.37 with exchange for me. I drove up there, and am local, so that's with sales tax, without shipping. Core is $100. If you had them build your box, there wouldn't be a core, obviously...

Yeah I talked with the "Redhead" folks today. By the time shipping a new box and returning the core, I'd be out bout $300.
IF Only one bolt hole doesn't line up,meaning two are good, the JGC box, which I've already purchased $115, is looking real good as I've confirmed my saganaw is the 4:1 variety, non variable.
Events have placed the 73 in one shop to calibrate/re-jet the Edelbrock, with immeidate transfer to shop two. Where the Vert will recieve a quick 'bandaid" paint job. Should be back home a week from today.
No! Wait!....Dang, I just jinxed the return date by mentioning it, Didn't I??
So it might be home in two weeks, at which time the JGC box wil be contended with.

Keep us posted on the progress with the JGC box. Unscientifically it looks to me like the forward most lower bolt will be at or just below the frame rail. I'm thinking about welding a sleeve into the frame for attachment.
