Sorry to post here but original post got buried.

Since the original box already installed and I'm mostly broke I'll take your advice and leave it in. It's not loose (car originally had p/s which takes some of the load off the steering box) and FR's is a bit much for me right now.

Wish VMF was around when I first started this project years ago, could have save a lot of money! *G*

Thanks,

Dean T

Dean,

you may want to get some of the grease that goes in the box. It is Motorcraft XG-C if my memory serves me correctly. It comes in a cartridge and the box takes almost an entire cartridge. Also, the adjustment of the box will improve the 'feel'.

Glad you mentioned that. I remember you went through a lot of work to determine the correct grease for your 'Stang.

I really like how your car is coming together. Can't wait to see it in person.

Regards,

Whoa Steve - Your car is looking really good! Will you be driving it to Buena Park next month? I'd love to see it. Are you sure you can't make the Knotts Dinner?

Dean - You are very welcome. I was lucky to have some very cool people
take the time to show me how to work on these cars when I got started.
I saved a ton of time and a lot of money by using other people ideas or
mistakes to show me the way. I didn't have anything like VMF to help me out.
I learned by reading car mags. Lots of them. I still get six every month. If
someone was to read this site every day for a week, they would learn what
took me a year to learn. Working on your car and doing it right the first time
is what makes it a fun and rewarding thing to do. Remember, "Beer and loud
music help alot".
