CJ-manual steering to power

I have all the parts that go on the engine(pump/bracket/lines/etc)...my question is what else do I need? Did I leave anything out in the list below

PS steering gear
PS pitman arm
PS steering shaft

does the steering shaft come complete ready to bolt in? or are there other parts i need to order.

Re: CJ-manual steering to power

Looks pretty good to me. If your doing steering upgrades sometimes its good to go ahead and replace all of your tie rod ends, ball joints, axle u joints. That is if you havent already done so. I know it helped my jeep out tremedously.

Re: CJ-manual steering to power

Maybe Brent will chime in on this. He did the conversion using everything from a V8 waggie. The ONLY issue was a bit of shimming to the box bracket and some welding to make a hybrid coupling from the steering shaft to the box. He's pretty proud of using one finger to steer with now![img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Here's an article that I came across on doing a power steering conversion maybe it will help. http://www.dirtroad.com/ps-art.htm

Re: CJ-manual steering to power

Sounds like a complete list to me. the only thing I can see missing is the PS Fluid [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Where did you get your PS Gear box? is it a donor, or new? Why did you get a new shaft? Manual one would work just fine. have you made sure that the coupler mates up to the out put shaft on the gear box? that was the only issue I had on mine. I took the rag joint that came on my Waggy box, and cut it down to just the clamp part, then took my stock coupler on the end of my shaft and cut off the splines, then welded the two salvaged pieces together to have the size that I needed.

if you have any questions, just ask.

Re: CJ-manual steering to power

Interesting about the waggy steering box...I hadn't even tried it. Thought I heard it wouldn't work. I also thought that the manual steering shaft is somehow different than the PS shaft. Is this not correct? reference where I got the steering box...have not got it yet, but autozone said they could get it in a day for $170 plus core.
