I have a 1967 mustang with long shaft manual steering set up. Can I purchase the short shaft steering box and upgrade the shaft in the steering column to accommodate or must I purchase a long shaft version steering box? If so, what parts do I need?

Asked by: Good boys garage
There is only one version with two shafts and a gear box. The long shaft connects to the pitman arm and the short shaft to the sterring column via the rag joint coupler. The short shaft has two sizes 1" and 1.125" diameter. Confirm the size for your setup on the short shaft side.

Can you tell me the difference between a longshaft and a shortshaft version of this product?

Asked by: Rients
The long shaft goes from the steering box to where the steering wheel mounts, the short shaft's splined shaft is a couple of inches long and has a rag joint on the end.

Hi, I ve got a mustang 68 with an original steering box with following numbers:8B17,C7ZR,3550A. Now I would like to order a  new one but I don't know wich is the right for my car? Thank you and many greetings Michael Kara

Asked by: michael kara
You can count the turns of the steering wheel from lock to lock, 4 turns is a 16 to 1 box, 5 turns is a 20 to 1 box, being a 68 it should have a 1 1/8 sector shaft, to be sure you may want to measure it.
