  1. I've seen the William Clay Ford Mark II in person. It is a beautiful car, and a great color. Although I believe I'm far more impressed by your work Roger!
  2. Any updates on this beauty? I know it's been a while, but I really enjoyed seeing this build.
  3. The main thing you need to make sure of is that you have a matching worm gear and sector shaft. If you use a different input (With worm gear installed) and try to use the old sector shaft you'll run into binding issues. I'd be happy to try to ID what you have if you'd like to email me pictures of the steering gears. Send them to danjones@larescorp.com
  4. It looks like another fun project. Are you going to keep this one once it's finished?
  5. The 605 is a Saginaw gear, and you're 100% correct about the ratio. The design of the gear isn't great though. They're prone to leaking, and having early wear. In my opinion having a bit better ratio is not enough of an upside to overlook the downsides of using this gear. The comparison is similar to a Buick, and a Yugo. They may both be cars, but only one will preform as it should for years to come.
  6. I would stay away from the 605 box. By design it's really not a great steering gear. There were many problems with it even when new. I try to steer (no pun intended) anyone I can away from using that gear after the horror stories I've heard working here. The Saginaw gear that is in the car now is a much better design, and much more reliable when built correctly.
  7. Excellent work so far! I bet it felt like finding a pot of gold when you realized everything was labeled. I'm looking forward to seeing this progress.
  8. I don't know how I missed this one before now. Very cool car Ron! Great work so far!
  9. That is quite an interesting steering setup. I'm excited to see this one come to life!
  10. I agree that you did the right thing Dave. All I was saying is seeing a grown man in hot pink ladies undergarments is a disturbing image. It was not a personal attack against you, or your cause.
