POWER RACK & PINION STEERING CONVERSIONS
FOR
54 thru 56
FORDS

&

MERCS

Specializing in rack and pinion conversions 
for fifty's and sixty's full size FORDS


WURTH IT DESIGNS 
OUR mission was to design a modern steering
system for 54-64 FULL SIZE FORDS and 
GALAXIES. Ford owners love their cars
but quite a few hate the steering. We listened
to the complaints and now have the solution.
POWER RACK and PINION STEERING!!!
These conversions require no modictions
to your chassis. They are a true BOLT- ON
For more info, take some time, and look
through our website or CALL US, there
is a live, courteous person to talk too at
the other end of the phone line.

THE ABOVE PICTURES ARE OF A 1956 FORD MAINLINE
THE STOCK STEERING COLUMN AND SHIFTER TUBE WERE
SHORTENED TO ACHIVE THE CORRECT ANGLE FOR THE
UPPER AND LOWER U-JOINTS AND STEERING SHAFT.
NOTE THAT THE STOCK NUETRAL SAFETY SWITCH HAS
BEEN RETAINED! THIS INSTALL WAS DONE WITH THE CAR
ON JACK STANDS AND THE ENGINE IN THE CAR. THE INSTALL
WAS DONE ON 06/30/2010


THE PICTURES BELOW ARE OF A 1956 MERCURY WITH
A 390 FORD F.E. ENGINE WITH COBRA JET HEADS. THE
LEFT HEAD WAS REMOVED AND MODIFIED TO USE THE
EARLY STYLE EXHAUST MANIFOLD TO CLEAR THE
LOWER U-JOINT. THE FRAME IS THE SAME AS THE FORDS
BUT THE FIRE WALL IS OUT TWO INCHES MORE THAN THE
FORD FIRE WALL. THIS INSTALLATION WAS DONE IN THE
SUMMER OF 2009

OLD STYLE STEERING

STEERING BOX, CENTER LINK,& IDLER ARM REMOVED

STEERING COLUMN REMOVED

390 WITH COBRA JET HEADS-EXHAUST MANIFOLDS DO NOT WORK,
SINCE THE OWNER WANTED TO KEEP THESE HEADS I PULLED THEM
AND DRILLED AND TAPPED THE HEADS FOR THE OLD STYLE EXHAUST
BOLT PATTERN.

I PAINTED THE EXHAUST  RED SO YOU COULD SEE IT BETTER IN THE
PICTURE. THIS MANIFOLD IS FROM FORD AND MERC FULL SIZE CARS
FROM 60-64 AND SOME TRUCKS INTO THE 70'S. AS YOU CAN SEE THIS
MANIFOLD HAS A LOT OF CLEARENCE FROM THE STEERING SHAFT.

THE ABOVE INSTALL WAS DONE ON A 1956 MERC 
WITH A 390 FORD FE ENGINE WITH COBRA JET HEADS
THE cobra jet HEADS  HAD TO BE MODIFIED to accept the OLD STYLE STRAIGHT PATTERN ExHAuST MANIFOLDS.
FE ENGINES WITH STANDARD HEADS AND EXHAUST WILL NOT NEED THESE MODIFICATIONS AND PROBABLY
WILL HAVE THE PROPER MANIFOLDS ON THE ENGINE .
