did you by chance catalog all the parts #, prices, sources, to do the conversion. after seeing your you tube videos i'm convinced and looking to do the conversion in the next year, but I should start collecting parts now, unless you have a spot at your shop where I can camp out and do the work with your expert help. yes i'm sucking up a bit.Hey guys, I know I don't post a whole lot in here anymore, but I thought this project might interest you since this swap is going to become a necessity in the coming years. I will be posting pics and explaining things here as questions arise, but you can also follow the project on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_6OEBrY6vNe4HK4CCpO21w
The power steering could be done prior to the steering gear by cutting the shaft and installing a charlynn style in shaft hand pump they work quite well, I put one on one of my old two ton IH trucks and it works well, the disadvantage is losing your horn wire I will try and post pictures sometimeNo power steering yet, but I have made provisions for it. The type E compressor I've installed came with an industrial power steering pump mated to the rear of it. I can't afford to do power steering right now, so I made a block off plate ( actually Larry made it) and I put the pump on the shelf until I'm ready for it. When I do install power steering I'll also install a hydromax brake system.
