    We are looking at making the 20:1 at the moment. It is on the drawing board for the next round new products to consider. But realistically we would be about a year out.

    Thanks

      Why not keep the power steering and upgrade to a Borgeson/Bergman kit?

        James, how does this box differ from the box that is already on the market?

        The box will be the same as the 16:1 but with the 20:1 gear set and I will be working to get it to the same price point as our current box. It will have the small sector shaft. But like I said it is currently on the board and my estimate would at minimum be 6 months to a year out on production of a 20:1 box

        Thanks
        James

          Does your pitman arm #PIT18758 for 16:1 steering box measure 5-1/4” from center to center like the OEM arm measures?

          thank you

          think it would need to be. for this box to be a 16:1 with any other stock arm, their arm would need to be the same or it would lower the ratio even further, ala the T/A arm

          Yes PIT18758 measures the same as the stock OEM arm.

          Thanks

          Will the manual box (SKU: MSBOX8831) fit a 1963 Dodge Dart that originally came with manual steering? Online it shows a 1964 Dodge Dart but not 1963...I don't think there is a difference but maybe there is? Thanks

          Yes I believe that is will. From my research it will as they use the same pitman arm.

          Thanks

          My 16 to 1 manual just arrived - in my case I was hoping for a smaller footprint (everything else is just bonus). Just placing them side by side on the work bench you can see the physical difference. I will attempt to take pictures attached to the k frame. i will be rebuilding the car soon

          And as always - PST great help and fast shipping

          You can pull your column out to eliminate the need for the adapter as the columns power and manual are the same. They have 2 positions. What nobody mentioned is the input spline is different. The manual boxes have a larger diameter input shaft. The couplers were different power and manual.

            Yes the case is aluminum.

            Also we do offer the adapter for the different in spline diameter is a customer is converting. We offer it as a package deal on our website.

              I just installed the 16:1 manual box on my 65. Install was pretty straight forward and the product looks great. Price with our discount is excellent. The one observation I have is that I find the box incredibly stiff. On the workbench, or the car with the wheels up in the air or driving around. The old box I could turn with my fingers. This one has a ton of resistance especially when centering the wheels. Not sure if it requires a break-in or an adjustment or what? It was packed with plenty of clean grease. Thanks

                They are not the same (one part of the shaft is longer), BUT you can do this.

                I'm considering this 16:1 box being I've got my motor out right now. One quick question, why is the 24:1 box $100 more? Is that one cast iron or something instead of aluminum?

                The reason is the 16:1 out sells 24:1. The 16:1 is our most popular ratio so we receive a quantity break on production cost and we pass the saving along to our customers.

                Thanks
