I just pulled a tilt steering column out of an 88 Suburban with a 700R4, I plan on using this steering clumn in my 55 wagon. Can I still use the CPP500 with this?The ONLY junkyard conversion is a 605. It's been around 25 years. You can do it cheap, but it's a lot of trouble to do cheap, and the results are not well liked by many. Plans for doing it are on the internet.
Most 605 conversions are (were) commercial though.
And they've been superseded by the CPP500 and similar boxes, which are reasonably priced and far better.
Well I'm not quite a fabricator, but I know my way around building cars and playing with tools....:happy0030:If your are a fabricator, most anything is possible, the thing I lack is patience, I ended up getting a tilt column from CPP and have been real happy with it, also got their 500 steering box. that is not yet installed. I took out a 605 that I had had converted.
I know you meant that in jest, but that statement points to something you should consider: whether or not you are capable of doing all the mods needed when you pick up "junkyard" parts to fit on your car.Well I'm not quite a fabricator, but I know my way around building cars and playing with tools....:happy0030:
There's an article in the site library: http://www.trifive.com/eklers/eklers-articles.htmThere are on line instructions for installing 76 and older van columns in 55-57 at CCIs site. I have 2 of those 87 truck tilts in my shop and see no way of using them in anything besides my 87 trucks.
