    Hi I have a 72 duster with power steering currently and I have a manual steering box I would like to install. If I get a mancini racing adaptor is this all I need to make the transition or do I need an entire manual steering column? Thanks!

    Are the hex nuts under the pitman arm both the same size ?
    If not you'll need a pitman arm.

    Yes, Redfish is right. Of course you will need to compare the 2 steering gears to make sure that you've got one that is an easy replacement for your power unit. But as long as it is you should be in business.

    Hex nut? Same size?

    Can someone un-muddy this for me. I'm going to do the swap as well and that's not something I have heard.

    Different diameter shafts/threads/nuts/gearboxes/pitman arms sums it up. The changed at some year model.
    I didn't know the alternate gearbox wasn't in hand there. The nut if present is the easiest recognized by eye.
