Installation How difficult is the installation with basic tools? Will having headers on the car cause any issues? How does the feel compare to original equipment (ease & turning radius)? As I am getting older and used to driving more current vehicles, would it be recommended to consider a power assist? Budget is a concern of course, I am retired and this is just a hobby vehicle.

This box can be installed with basic tools but you will need a puller to remove the pitman arm from your current box so that it can be installed on the new one. Steering effort, feel, and turning radius will be the same as a new OEM box. Changing to power steering is the only way to make it steer easily like modern vehicles.

No this steering box is for manual steering only. This box would be considered the short shaft style.

This steering box has an adjustment shaft and jam nut on the plate close to the input shaft. With the steering centered from lock to lock you loosen the jam nut and then screw in the adjustment thread with either a straight screw driver if the adjustment stud is slotted or allen wrench if so equipped. Little at a time and you do not want to eliminate the free play all together as then it will get tight when going off center and hard to steer. It is common to have 3/4" to 1 1/4" of freeplay in the steering wheel but can be adjusted per personal preference.

This box was designed to be mounted with the input at the top and the pitman arm at the bottom. I am not sure just how well it would work trying to turn it another way to use for traditional steering, that is something you would have to experiment with to see if you could make it work.
