Looking for Manual Steering box
#1
I am looking for a manual steering box to replace my current power steering setup. It feels too light when you get on it and at high speeds. Willing to trade my whole setup including reproduction power steering box, lines, pump, and aluminum cooler for a singular manual steering box. At 18 years old, I tend to stay away from high expenses the best I can, so I like trading and bartering for parts I need. If anyone has any idea to modify the power steering pump to be great at low speed in say a parking lot but have that rigid feeling at higher speed please let me know. Thankyou.

To start, I think it's great that a young person is interested in the car(s) we grew up with. Welcome to the forum.
As Don C asked, please go to introductions and show us your car. We love pictures for sure and tell us about yourself and you plans for your car.
From my own personal experience, the car I have, came from the factory with no power anything except "Armstrong" and believe me, you need "Armstrong" to steer that car in a parking lot for instance. On the road, I too prefer the feel of a manual, but WHY! With the correct ratio, power steering is absolutely the way to go imo. I changed mine in a heart beat to a Variable Ratio PS box.
I suspect your power steering box is the standard 17.5:1 ratio. If it's a Mach 1 with competition suspension, it should be a variable ratio box, 16 to 13:1. Do you know if the ID tag is still on the PS box you have? If so and you can see it, can you post the tag ID. It will be located under one of the 4 screws that hold the aluminum sector shaft cap. By telling us what you have will help with suggestion how to get better feel on the road.
If you do chose to go manual, these also come in different ratio's. My book shows a 71 at 22:1, 72-73 at 24:1.
