Info-Pic request: V8 Quick-steer Pitman/Idler

Post #1 by powerband » Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:41 pm

Gathering parts for 65 FALCON V8 type steering conversion on '61 Comet with Maverick spindles.

Spec'g the steering center Link , 1" Pitman arm, Idler Bracket and Idler Arm ,Inner-outer Tie Rods.

I'm checking out the 65 (Mustang) 'Quicksteer' Pitman and Idler, and wondering if it will fit with the SIX car 'Belly-Bar' - under engine reinforcement bar?. Quicksteer arms are supposed to be 1" longer (towards front/down) than stock 65 arms.

Otherwise, I think the stock Pitman/Idler will fit with the SIX car 'belly-bar' ??. ... Shelby.axd

:hmmm: it sounds like the QuickSteer parts were patterned after the 1965 Shelby GT 350 parts. 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.
