Q & A

What's in the Box

If you have tried to find a good used Corvair steering box, you know that the chances of finding a good one are slim to none. Don't bother! These brand new Corvair steering boxes have already been reversed. Designed for use on traditional steering cars and T-buckets, these boxes are constructed of modern high strength steel and needle bearings to ensure durability, which original boxes just can't offer. 

Painted black. Does NOT include pitman arm. Ratio is 20:1.

Sometimes you need just a little bit more clearance than a standard steering u-joint can give you. Our double u-joints allow up to 70 degrees of angle or 1" of offset for just those occasions. These steering universal joints are made of forged vanadium steel and real needle bearing joints.

  • Overall length is 5-1/2”
  • O.D. at ends is 1.12”

Learn more about u-joints and steering systems by reading our tech article, U-Joint Selection and Design.

Speedway Stainless Steel Corvair Pitman Arm, 7 Inch End to End
                        

This is our forged 'new design' Corvair pitman arm. It measures approximately 7" end to end, approximately 5-3/8" from the center of the big hole to the center of the small hole. The arm has a side-to-side offset approximately 1-7/8". The small hole fits an early Ford tie rod end (such as our 910-02909) and it is half tapered from both sides so that the drag link can be mounted from either side.
