    There are a lot of them. Look up reversing steering boxes also.
     
  4. I did one on my model a and got most of the info in here, search cowl steering.

    Here's a couple of pics of how I did my Sport Coupe. The car was so low the column ended up through the dash. It had great lines of site and sat well. I couldn't get a pitman arm the right length so I fabbed one, Pics tell the story.

    Used the Mopar box and everything else was home made.

    I've read every thing I could find on the HAMB for the past two years on cowl steering and the best I've found is on Guernsey boy's build thread for his Model A coupe. Find his build thread and look starting about page 16.

    I used a Chrysler box on my 36 IHC. This is a pic before some extra bracing.

    That pitman arm looks way cool, I like the pontiac emblem good touch!

    ps ya should fix your pictures so they are verticle instead of horizontal.

    the box pictured is 60,s to 75 mopar non power. does not require reversing and you can achieve just about any ratio you like. I cowl steered several with good results.

    I sold the project before it was 100 % street ready. When it was finished, the guy who bought it did add a support bearing. I told him too, and at first it wasn't done and it did have movement.
