This is my post a few posts above...
Ok, finally about ready to tackle this project, parts are compiled and uncounted posts have been read.
Early on someone said what I was thinking, this is simple, you cut a whole in the shaft big enough to accommodate the motor, reattach the shaft to the motor, attach a few wires and youíre done. The issue is where do you make that cut? Everything else can work off that cut.
Iím working on a stock 65. I picked up a rebuilt long shaft quick steer Shelby box to replace my worn original. So, in theory, I have a 2nd donor shaft if I screw up the cuts. Iíd rather not need it.
After all the ones that have been done do we have hard numbers for where to cut ?
I considered simply holding the motor up to the shaft under the dash and approximating the location from that. But I assume thereís a more precise way to do it. But that seems like it would work. Pull the outer tube off the shaft. Then hold motor up in location to be mounted and mark the ends of the input/output shafts on the steering column. This would be the location of the 2 cuts that need to be made with some allowances for whatever adapters that are being used.
Am I making this too hard?
BTW Iím using a kit from epowersteering.com. It came with adapters and everything. I couldnít find a motor in good shape nearby and by the time I cobbled all the parts together it wasnít much more to buy the kit plus it has a lifetime warranty. And I just wanted to try his kit. It uses the VUE motor and his modified controller that he says alleviates the need for fail safe mode. Iíll post a build thread when Iím done.
Not sure of what your asking?
