Got a ’62-’82 Mopar? Yeah, we know that’s a huge time frame, but it’s lucky for you – if you answered yes to the previous question anyway. Reason being, Borgeson Universal now produces complete power steering conversion kits for your Mopar that falls anywhere in that massive year range.
The kits feature quality parts Borgeson has been known for since 1914. Converting your classic Mopar to power steering isn’t just an improvement because of the physical element we all know too well – our forearms, biceps, and shoulders are feeling a pump just thinking about it. Doing so will afford you better handling, and a more precise steering feel.
By making the switch, users can take advantage of Borgeson’s new compact 14:1 ratio integral power steering box, Saginaw pump with brackets and pulley, hoses, and a steering-column coupler. Borgeson’s conversion kits can be had with either a 1-1/8″ or 1-1/4″ sector shaft, so you’ll be able to fit them to whichever of the two original Pitman arms your vehicle came with. They also come with pump brackets made to accommodate big block or small block applications – users can select either.
We all know how tiresome it is making what seems like an endless amount of turns of the wheel to make a u-turn. Well, with the 14:1 quick ratio box it only takes 3.5 turns to go from lock-to-lock. Additionally, the box offers a 10-pound weight savings over a stock power steering box, increased exhaust clearance, and a tighter overall feeling to the steering.
So, if you’re ready to bring your manual steering into the modern age, or you’re just ready to upgrade from the old factory unit, check out Borgeson.com.
