It's alot easier to steer in parking lots if the car is moving slowly forward or back. If it's just standing still, steering is very difficult.I did it on a '66 coupe. The steering is tough in parking lots, but otherwise excellent. What mistake are you worried about?
Believe me, I'm aware of the technique. It's still a right PITA to do. It doesn't help that it is a V8 car with AC and PS, a 16:1 box, larger tires (215/60R15) and 3 degrees of positive caster.It's alot easier to steer in parking lots if the car is moving slowly forward or back. If it's just standing still, steering is very difficult.
Once you get used to that, it's easy.
Excellent quote here, could not have expressed this better.My, okay, I'll be one of those who thinks you made a mistake. i hope you still have all of the pieces. Even if you don't put them back on, they're valuable to those looking for such things. Can I ask what was the reasoning that you took them off ? Low speed stuff is so much easier with p/s, and it costs so little power, why remove it if you have it ? Whats the thinking ? LSG
