For some reason it’s not letting me post. Long story short, it’s been sitting for 2 1/2 years bc the tranny went out. Then it wouldn’t start and so today I figured out it’s the fuel pump so I’m going to replace tomorrow. Then get the tranny fixed in the next couple weeks.

I think I figured out how to get it to post.

I decided it’s been sitting long enough and it needs to get back on the road. So I’m going to spend some time fixing or finishing things that I never got to or that need to be fixed from the first go round. Also, I’m on a mission to get it to handle better. I have a lot of casted but it doesn’t return to center. I think I got two junk steering gears. I’m also thinking about the shackle swap that rocklaurence has. Lots of little things to do but I’m excited to get it back on the road.

There is always the option of using the S10 power steering box. You can search it here. Quite a bit of info on it.

Yes, for sure! That’s actually what I’ve had problems with. I went to hydroboost and an s10 steering gear but have had problems finding a good one.
