Is it safe to assume this bracket system works with any of the aftermarket columns for 1st gens? It looks to be a very nice bracket.

The kits will fit 1962-67 and the kit aprt #s are not in the system yet but they are in the midst of being created. Hope this helps a bit.
We have a couple of 68's that could use a power steering upgrade like that. I'll PM you my e-mail and if you guys do one for the third gens you can let me know. We already have your zero offset front power disc brake conversions on both cars. Great set up.

Yeah the 1968-74 Nova's get the CPP 500 series box and they are the nicest on the planet for $379.00! Check out all the details on our website they are an awesome piece!

Is this new box the same size as the original box? or smaller? The reason I ask is because I'm running an LS motor in my car and header to steering box clearance is very tight

Guys i have an overlay of the original manual box and the CPP power steering box. These are still tight but thus far i have not seen an issue unless someone is using totally wrong headers. Red outline is factory manual box and the shaded gray box is the new CPP 400 series box.

Hey Jeff! It's Mike from San Diego... I'm over into the Nova world now. Still have a couple trucks though.

Question about the idler arm kit, will that work with all the factory links, steering box, arms, etc.? I was thinking of doing a bearing conversion on my idler but I like this setup better but not quite ready to replace a whole bunch of other stuff.

Thanks!

is it possible for the new idler arm to be installed in a 62? if so what would be needed for the swap.

Of COURSE this comes out 6 months AFTER I replace every last piece of my stock '63 PS setup (which ended up costing more than it would to buy this simple upgrade)...

Looks really nice!
