    I have a back half 74 that I am going to make into a drag car. I am going to be changing out the 350 for a large BB, probably a 572. My question is... What are the advantages of an aftermarket front clip? I know there is a lot more room for everything with the new clip. They also have a...

    I'm swapping the manual steering to power. I've got a gear box supposedly from another 70 or 72 Nova. When I attempted to test fit it today its alignment to the column was a touch off. Meaning the gear box was pointed a touch high. Does anyone know if it is supposed to be or needs to be dead...

    I'm in the middle of rebuilding my steering column for my 69 non-tilt column. From taking it all apart, I see that some of the little parts could use some replacing. This weekend, the local Pick-a-part is having a 50% off sale, and I'm wondering what columns would have the same parts. I...

    What do you guys think could be the reasoning for the excessive steering play? 3-5 inches while in park, engine off.

    So I'm a new poster to the site, up until now I've just creeped the forums and pictures.

    I am currently working my wagon, and of course, I am experiencing the occasional,"might-as-well-do-this-while-I-am-here", syndrome. So what is the best option and value in steering component combinations for the column and steering box? Thanks for the help, folks! :D GerryLP:cool:
