POWER STEERING CONVERSIONS
Bleeding power steering, yes, it does need done. Power steering systems are “self-bleeding” but we are installing new components. With truck off,
fill reservoir and let sit for a bit, raise the front end and turn wheels back and forth slowly (engine is still OFF) allow the box to draw fluid, keep adding
fluid to reservoir, keeping it full, when level stops dropping, start truck and continue to turn wheels until fluid stays full. Put cardboard, upside down
rug, etc under front tires, will let tires slide on concrete floor, saves tires, floor and your back. New steering having trouble? If the problem is on one
side or one direction, check box or rack or pitman arm areas. If problem is on both sides or directions, it is probably the pump, the fluid or hoses, do
the bleeding procedure above.

The compact design is closely modeled after the original manual steering
box. With its 13.6:1 ratio (2.75 turns lock to lock) it has the performance
handling of many rack and pinion conversions without the need for
extensive modifications. Cheaper than our old Toyota conversion with a
used box, and this is all NEW!

Box only............................................................ 4613-5356...... $375.00 ea
NOTE: IF installing on 48-52 truck, mounting holes for the bracket will
have to be located and drilled into the frame for this kit to work.
Toyota Steering conversion is a very simple and nice set up if done properly. Articles have been written and
installations done using the ford pitman arm by squeezing it down on the Toyota sector shaft, literally smashing
the splines together. Splines do not match. DO NOT INSTALL YOUR STEERING IN THIS MANNER!!!!! Call us
for any help or explanations, don’t believe everything you read, unless you read it here, of course!
