I have been building a 52 GMC. it has been on the back burner for 25 yrs and i have forgotten a lot... i read somewhere about using a 57-58 truck steering gearbox to alleviate clearance issues with headers and such......has anyone heard of this?? i have a gearbox that was given to me and may just jump in and do it blind!!
Thanks

Hi, I used a power steering box from a 1969 C10 mounted outside the frame in front of the axle on my 53 GMC with a 350 in it and a set of rams horn exhaust.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Clearance issues with the v8 exhaust would be my guess.
