PIC request - V8 steering setup

I am looking for pics '65 V8 type Manual Steering setup on an early Falcon.

I have a 61 with a 250 and need to see if steering gear will clearance the 250's SBF V8 Bellhouse and Starter position.


Thanks

Good luck :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

Thanks for the excellent info , just what I needed to swap in the heavier duty V8 setup.

... my '61 has '71 Maverick six spindles and currently uses the six steering gear with center link 'flipped' to clear SBF bell and 'Mustang Steve' outer tie rod bushings to fit the later spindles.
