Hi everyone. I found some time and I was in the garage yesterday. I began the process of going from traditional steering to cross steering. I removed the header and I cut the steering rod above the steering box. The rod is now protruding down about 1.5" from the bottom of the steering column jacket. I removed the steering box and this thing is in really bad shape. It isn't frozen but I can get it to turn either. I'm going to take this apart over the winter and see just how bad it is. Anyhow, I'm mocking up the new steering. I'm going from the existing steering rod to a newly located steering box. From the box, it's then across to the passenger side steering arm. I looked at the Speedway catalog last night and made a diagram of what I wanted to do. I selected some parts that I thought would work but didn't order anything yet. My question is in re. to these parts which have a universal joint to them. How much of an angle can these joints accommodate and still be very functional?? I don't see my design being too radical or crazy, but I don't want to bind the joints either. It will have some angles to avoid the frame and then find its way to the steering box. Is there a rule of thumb when using them? I've seen a lot of street rods/customs that have used these joints and some of them had what appeared to be a real serious angle to them. Whatever I use will be 3/4" by 30 spline with DD rod. The ends will vary depending on where I use them. Again, I'm self-taught with a lot of this. My concern is how far off center, off plumb, can I take these universals. I'll do the best I can, but I can't make it perfectly straight. Thank you for any thoughts, input, Carmine.
