I am converting my 6 Cylinder Camaro into a Z/28 Clone. I planning on using my stock original 6 Cylinder Steering Box & Pump.
What is the difference between the 6 cylinder pump and a stock SB pump and can I use my original pump?
I took my steering box to a steering specialist today and he informed me that my steering box is an original unit for my car, however it has been repaired a long time ago. He said that the stock base car steering box should be a 4 & 1/4 turn lock to lock. He also informed me that I have a variable 3 worm gear. He is going to rebuild the box, but wants to know if I want the same variable gear, or a 3 worm gear constant. or close ratio unit.
It was a lot for information to absorb as I am not familiar with steering box's or power steering pumps for that matter. I told him that I would investigate the options and let him know how I want him to proceed.
Hopefully I will get some good advice here that will point me in the right direction.
I am looking to find out which approach would be best suited for my application.
