MANUAL VS POWER STEERING COLUMN CONNECTION

The new style manual Mustang rack and pinion kits and all of the power Mustang rack & pinion kits use the same column connection and the same column modification. The new manual Mustang rack part numbers consist of 8001090-01, 8001110-01, and 8001120-01. These are center take off racks. The old kits have end take off racks.

Both of the 60-65 Falcon rack and pinion kits come with a new steering column shaft, but they are both slightly different from each other.

The new manual Mustang kits, power Mustang kits, and the manual 60-65 Falcon kits will fit with nearly any header.  Most headers will fit with the 60-65 power Falcon kit.

Foamy Fluid?

If your fluid is foamy or if it has air bubbles in it make sure you have correctly bled the system for air. If you have and it is still foamy then this means your system is sucking up air while running. If your pump is making noise this is also made because of the air. If you have a leak in the system then you will have to fix the leak and this should solve the problem. If you do not have a leak it does not mean that the system is not sucking up air. You will have to check all of the fittings, crimps, and connections that are in your system to make sure they have a perfect fit. These are the most common areas for air to be sucked in. It is a hard task to find the air leak but if you have any questions always feel free to give Unisteer a call at 1-800-338-9080 and we will be happy to assist you.
