    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
