CJ P.S. pittman arm questions
Well, I have searched for several hours but have not found
this one. I have a 77 CJ-7 with an 85 frame. My axles are from an 81 CJ-5. I got a power steering box and bracket from a 75 CJ-5. The CJ-5 had axles from a 76-79 CJ (AMC 20 rear,Dana 30 front with thick rotors)
The p.s. and brackets bolted to the frame without modification. The problem is there doesnt seem to be enough swing to turn the wheels to the stops in both directions.I adjusted the drag link to even things out but now it wont turn to the stop on either side! Also the pittman arm has a bend,maybe 30 degrees. Shouldn't it be straight? The drag link is paralell with the tie rod but the bend in the pittman arm bend looks like it was done with the help of a torch.
The whole thing just does not seem right. Any ideas?
I'm not sure I want to drive it like this.
