Hello All. So there I am last Saturday, working on my 66 Mustang
suspension/steering. I ordered a kit to replace everything up front, and I
got it all in. I started the steering Friday and got every thing off (drag
link, idler arm, tie rods) I placed the new parts next to the old parts,
noticed they didn't look alike at all. Oh no! I figured the company had
sent me power steering parts when I asked for manual. Got some catalogs
out, looked at pictures of steering parts.
What do you know? My Mustang, a confirmed V-8, came down the line and they
put 6 cylinder steering on my car. My old idler arm, pittman arm, drag
link, and tie rods are all 6 cyl pieces. I know that in 65 they were
running short on V-8 engines, apparently that isn't all they ran short of.
The car always drove fine, though I'm sure I'll notice a difference when I
get it back on the road.
