The Cross Steer is essentially a small half rack and pinion that bolts into place exactly where the steering box would bolt on. The system still uses a draglink between both wheels. The Cross Steer was specifically designed for solid axle cars and trucks of this era. This specific Cross Steer us very similar to our '28-'32 Ford Cross Steer - the gear is essentially the same, but with a slightly slower ratio to accommodate these larger vehicles. The biggest difference is the mounting bracket; the large mounting bracket actually bolts up in between the frame rails on these Fords. A boxed frame will have to be opened up to accommodate the bracket. The bracket does hang down lower, so this Cross Steer will only work on cars with the stock axle or a 2" drop axle, it will not work with 4" drop axles.
The rack comes mounted to the bracket with drag link tube and mounting hardware. You will also need some U-joints and a shaft to connect down to the pinion. This manual rack will handle vehicles around 3500 lbs, check with engineering for any heavier applications.
