    power steering delete made simple... and it looke good..

    Well I have been working on this idea of going without power steering and I have found something that is good... How about a unit that bolts in and everything works... Now add to that it is CHROME is it will look good as well... Cost looks to be $300 plus shipping... and they are in stock... I got one coming and as soon as it is here I will post it for all to see.....Rich

    nice looking rack here..

    so now I got to get it into the car. I will work on it tomorrow and let you know how it goes. Hope this is a good fit as the builder said.. If so this might be the new way to go with this change over....Rich

    the rack is in the car..

    well after doing my homework and finding all the correct stuff this is a done deal.. Total cost for parts is under $400 for the swap.. the rack was $325 with shipping, the "U" joint was $53.00 local pick up. and the double "D" shaft was just $21.00. The rack can use stock tie rod ends so there is no cost there. This rack is 3 3/4 turns lock to lock so that will not be bad driving as long as you are moving...lol. My son will be posting the pic's when he gets home tonight so watch for them. With the chrome as well as the price you get to save weight as well as look good..... how can you go wrong????...Rich

    here you go..

    the rack comes from a place in Chicago called Kaufman Products Inc. 773-489-7255... the "U" joint comes from the local race car place around here.. the double "D" stock came from Jegs.. Now this is what I did.. Now if you want you can get both the "U" joint as well as the stock from Jegs, but I found it a lot better to get it local as it was cheaper and it is good stuff.
    Now when you order the rack tell them you heard about it from me and that will help so he will send it out to you rather than thru a local parts store... that saves you money and time.Just ask for a manual rack for a t-bird... they have them in stock as well..
    Let me know if anyone has trouble and I will call the owner for you....Rich

    From what I know the Mark VIII steering is the same as the MN12 T-bird, so would it be reasonable to assume this would also work on the FN10 Lincoln?

    The only thing I know is that it works on a t-bird. I would say look to see if the stock racks carry the same part number.. If they do then you are good to go. I could also say try a bird rack and see if it fits in your car?? I know I got a couple of good used ones here....Rich

    I've heard looping the lines is not that bad depending on what size tire you run. I was going to give this a try.

    I was not happy with how it worked. This is something that should work just like if it was done from Ford....I hope. This rack is also less weight then the stock stuff.. Rich

    Looks awesome Rich!

    I would not loop the line. I've broken more than one rack doing that.
