Electric Power Steering Conversion Kit for all 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs.

Fix your steering problems with an electric power steering conversion. Now you can enjoy modern power steering in your classic car. This kit is great for Mustangs with limited engine space due to big blocks, headers, etc. The entire unit mounts inside the vehicle under the dash and will also work with rack and pinion conversions (with the correct u-joint adapter for rack). Adjust the amount of steering assistance on the fly with the included potentiometer. The motor includes an internal computer that measures the amount of effort applied to the steering wheel. The computer figures out how much assistance the motor provides in different situations. You can fine tune the assistance with the potentiometer by turning a knob.

Includes:
- Electric power steering motor
- Electronic control box
- Firewall plate for steering shaft support with bearing
- Steering shaft with u-joints
- Wiring harness
- On/off switch
- Potentiometer to adjust the amount of steering assist

This Electric Power Steering Conversion Kit for all 1968, 1969, and 1970 Mustangs. Ford's factory power steering is an inadequate system and notorious for fluid leaks. Electric power steering does not use any fluid and it is recommended that the factory power steering (if equipped) slave cylinder and control valve be disconnected from the power steering. Installation is rather easy with some cutting, drilling, tapping and wiring required.

Although this kit is made to work with the factory steering column, modifications to the steering column are required. The long steering shaft must be cut near the steering box to install the included steering shaft. The modifications required on the steering column are low enough that they do not interfere with the ignition switch on the column of 1970 Mustangs. An upgraded electrical system is not required; all electrical wiring is plug and play except for a required power source and a ground.

*MSA2 can be used to replace the power steering control valve while keeping the center link connected to the pitman arm.

Vehicle Fitment

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware For a $1500 item, this item's craftsmanship is subpar. I've had to grind, sand, and bore components to make them work plus disassemble and re-assemble parts so they were oriented correctly. The instructions are atrocious. Again, it's a $1500 item and they can't give solid instructions. You're basically on your own. The confusing instructions caused me to cut my steering column tube incorrectly which delayed the project. This is one of the top 3 most aggravating projects I've done. I'd rather pull an engine and tranny than deal with this again. The function is fine but I wish I would have just kept my manual steering and my $1500 after all of the fuss.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not quite fit '68 I have a '68 Mustang, engine ran beautifully. I bought this because my wife (leukemia) cannot handle the manual steering anymore but loves to drive the car. Had this professionally installed. It works (so far) but the problem is it wobbles around slightly and leads to shaky belts and a noisy/chirpy engine. I had a professional hot-rod builder look at it. His diagnosis was that it was very low quality and just is not the bet fit for the '68. His suggestion was to track down the original parts and have someone install it. Don't buy this. I fully regret it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from hard install Had a very difficult time installing in my 1968 Mustang with tilt column,4 speed.Electric motor doesn't clear clutch pedal and when I moved it to above gas pedal,it hits the wiper motor.Not much clearance above gas pedal.This kit is only good for standard column,automatic cars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product for the experienced installer Purchased this as an alternative to installing the old style power steering on my 1969 Boss 302. It's pricey but the ease of use and no need for maintenance after installation sold me. Picked up another 69 column as to not destroy the original unit from the Boss. I watched the installation video on the manufacturer's site many times and searched the net relentlessly for Mustang install insights. (there are not many) CJ Pony Parts shipped quick for me and was very appreciated. Once received the hardware is very robust and good quality. Fit and finish was very good as well. The main motor unit looked like it had been sitting for a while. Zinc motor coating looked a little old but good regardless. Not like I'm going to see it anyway. What did surprise me though was the lack of any useful instructions. Instructions consisted of an approximate 3 x 5 booklet with small pictures and general instructions that covered 67-70 Mustangs. 9 small size pages, can't fit much writing on a 5 inch page. The unit received also differed from the unit shown in the installation video. The changes were for the better (no need to cut the shaft as it included one. Column yes but not the shaft) but no mention of the running changes were in the instructions. Instructions on what length to cut the column are different from 67 to 69 and the instructions are not clear. I cut the column using the longer length because I could always shorten it and good thing I did because for 69 it was the 15.5 inches as opposed to the 13.5 for a 67. No need drill and tap set screws as seen on the installation video as the unit already had them done but again no mention of these running changes. Installation was more difficult than it needed to be due to the lack of instructions. Took time to see how things would work together and what to dismantle to make the installation easier. An underdash bracket had to be disconnected in order to fit the unit and was no longer able to reattach the bracket to the bottom of the dash without an extra extension I fabricated. No mention of this as well. The unit is large and on a 69 it fits in the 3-4 oclock position. Once installed and wired it works as intended and I am happy with the result. The steering effort is adjustable which is nice. I will mention that one of the wires on the harness came out of the connector. Maybe I pulled too hard or the wire was just weak but after all the work there was no way I was going to remove and send back. Fabricated a removable jumper wire to by pass the connector for that wire only and continued on. Overall I am happy with the unit but I really expected more detailed and meaningful instructions for the price paid. Would I buy it again? Maybe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great. 70 mustang I had a shop install it. They ran into problems just like the other reviews here say. I got 1000miles on it and so far I'd say it works fine. I adjust it to max and car steers with no problem. I wouldnt compare it to a brand new luxury car with electric steering but it is very simple now to turn the tires. Dose drain lots on my alternator

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation link incorrect When I receive the unit I down loaded the installation information from your website. I could tell something was not correct. I called and was told I would receive a rettcall. I never received the call. I called the manufacture and was told the installation information was wrong. They emailed me the correct information

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric Power Steering Wanted to try this application with my 68 Mustang. This eliminates the normal power steering pump with reservoir and pulley-belt changes. Waiting to see the results which I expect to be awesome.

I have a 1969 mustang fastball, 390 with headers. I have the original power steering with all new parts-and have nothing but problems and leaks every year. Will this conversion fit with big block and headers? Or is the rack n pinion set up better?

Asked by: Nfb27
This kit would work well on vehicles with underhood clearance issues.
