    My 56 88 has manual steering, I am planning a swap to a newer (possibly the grand Cherokee) power steering box.
    I kept a Power Steering column out of a another 56, but I didn't grab the power steering pitman arm.
    Will my manual steering arm work or do I need one off a power box?
    I'm running a 455 so the pump and brackets are no problem.

    There were a couple of threads on 56 Old p/s conv, just a month ago. 2 hambers were redoing a girls car.

    Try a title search for "56 Olds steering"

  7. You have my missing link to the reply below. Several HAMBers came thru with parts and info, I thank you all. Just need that column. Your manual pitman will work on a 605 box if you want to go that route.
