I am looking to convert to manual Rack and Pinion, however I am not sure if this is possible with a 351w based motor in a 65 car. Has anyone done this? Any input is greatly appreciated!
Even at the stock psi, it's too much. Takes about a 7" pulley on a stock Ford
pump to get you where you need to be- that'll give you the feedback you lack.
(I open-tracked my '66 for 10 years with the factory style PS, but you have to
do a few mods to make it work the way you need it to for that task)
