steering question....

Long story short, to help the steering shaft fit around the header I took 2 of the little shaft U-joints and welded them together, it cleared it fine but requires the need to be braced to the frame in order to utilize the u joints to pivot, I believe I have heard of people doing this before but was just wondering if it sounds like a bad idea seeing as I dont have many other options besides running an external mounting steering box i.e. a scout II steering box...

Re: steering question....

Also I purchased a 1986 Ford F150 fuel pump, its an electronic external mounted pump, Im worried about it applying to a carbuerated motor? Will it work?

Re: steering question....

i know on the old early 70's ford ranger's they have a mid-shaft bearing
a u-joint with a brace in the middle
get a pillar block with a hole big enough fo the steering shaft mount it the the firewell to keep the end fixed and let the u-joints work

Re: steering question....

thats what I figured, Im gonna embrace it heavily and run it, but what about the fuel pump? Will it be to strong for a carbuerated motor?

Re: steering question....

i'm running a low press. auto zone pump 3 to 5 psi
i have a regulator on it down to 2 1/2 psi on the webber 1.6 8v.

LQQK at what the the motor and carb require and the make sure the pressure at the carb meets that then you will be fine

Re: steering question....

That fuel pump is to much pressure for a Carb.

Re: steering question....

If the engine does not have a place for a stock manual pump, go with a low pressure pump for the carb. Was the sammy fuel pump for efi? If so then there is to much pressure for the carb also.

Re: steering question....

Yes it was for EFI, then could I get maybe a pressure regulator and run it or a little 30 dollar fuel pump...
