Converted to power steering. Anyone need a manual box?

Could that be fitted to a Series do you think?

Not so sure about that. It would take some work on the frame to mount it, but it could probably be done. I don’t think it would be much of an improvement though. The p38 box mounts pretty well on the outside of the frame and would get you power steering.

I don't think I'd want power steering in a series truck, but for some of my trucks the steering is kind of old and crusty/rusty so I was just curious.

The front crossmember occupies the space where the box mounts.
