Borgeson power steering conversion
Just finished installing the Borgeson PS kit in my 1966 coupe. The car came with factory PS but i like the concept of this mod better. Anyway, I thought I'd offer some advice on the install which was a be ach! When it comes to cutting the column take your time during the measuring process. I cut mine with a 4" high-speed grinder which wasn't a straight cut so in the process of trimming it to make the cut even I got a little too aggressive and cut the column too short. It installed ok but there was a 1/4" gap between the steering wheel and the column that I couldn't live with so I bought another column on ebay for $35. I cut the new column with a chop saw the second time
The other thing is the plate that comes with the kit (no new rubber gasket which you need to replace) to support the column and cover the hole at the firewall should NOT be installed before you put the cut column in. Slide it and the gasket up on the column before you install the column and then screw in place. This may seem simple but I wasted a lot of time trying to get the column in through the plate and gasket already mounted in place.
