What are you guys doing for steering?

Discussion in 'HA/GR' started by KyTj, Mar 21, 2008.

  1. There was a cool one in the HAMB classifieds for $75 shipped, but the guy hasn't logged on since AUG 09, and someone else has dibs.

    The bus style was my first option, but my seating position might not work well with that.

    It can still be done...check out how they did it in the Marcellus & Borsch AA/FA.

    The technology isn't modern and they used old parts.
     
  3. Maybe I'll get a close look at it at Dragfest?

    What's up with the link to "human skull sales" on the site? I'm not opening that link.

    I wouldn't do it either, my security program won't even open the main site for me. Warnings galore, looks to be corrupted.

    Like wise I use a Suzuki Jimny box , small , light , no master spline on the drop arm , easy to match up steering column splines.
     
  8. I don't think we got Jimnys in the US of A, but we got Samurais in the mid-80's.

    In the US/Canada the earlier (ie:72) Jimny was called the Brute, the later was the Samurai

    I've used an economical alternative.

    It's a mid 60's mopar "bullet" steering box that easily cowl mounts.

    It's kin'da big but it looks good.

    On ebay type in bullet steering box ...they generally run under $100.00

    Dodge,

    Like I said before, "It's very discouraging to spend a bunch of money on safety equipment and then have to lay there and watch it drive away without you."

    Roger that Butch. Back in '89 I tripped over a tie down chain at the airport and blew my elbow apart...caught a lot of flack on that one as I was the "safety officer" in the little flying club we belonged to at the time. I've always believed a sense of humor helped to put up with the curve balls life throws at me.

    Yea, I have been busy with work and this had to go on the side burner for now. I am almost finished with my other project. Hopefuly I can get back to getting one up and going.

    Looks like you have a good start on yours.
