Ready for Summer in Pittsburgh

Actually, the reason for Sale: IBM Disease (Slow Deterioration of the Quad and Forearm Muscles) Diagnosed 3 months ago. With no Power Steering, it is difficult to Park and Maneuver........ With PT and a Trainer, which I have never had, I will plan to "Maintain Muscle". All the best.......

68hemi,

I'm actually thinking that is a very good idea...........I have taken a look at my under dash and have plenty of room both under the dash and behind the Bluetooth radio for controls.......No real issues with my steering box other than cleaning, bearing check, and re-lubricating.........Running wide tires is a real killer for me..Thanks again for your suggestion.........American Power Trane which is more expensive or EPAS currently on sale at Ecklers?????

61 vette
hey dcamick- Iíll say it now, but I told you in my PM that I have a 61, with custom ribbon candy graphics, and many enthusiasts, while itís nice to have, for them it must be a duplicate of Detroit innovation.
thankfully the owner was grateful that I would keep it unchanged. I paid 44, but no hardtop(4000$), and needed Holley, a battery, and and clutch, and 3.08 gears! But I love the 61 because of its attitude and the sculpting of parts- it brings me back to a time these were released. Memory evoked and current events becoming new memory! Hope and pray(for real-not a slogan) for healing. Yes, back injury in 2007, and I may like power steering soon, but read up on steroids. Hope you get to keep but itís been a ride!!

Just a note, unnecessary discussion posts in this thread not advancing the sale have been removed. If you want to debate something, take it to PM. If you want to start namecalling, keep it to yourself.

I have the American Power and love it. Altogether changes the car for the better. You can adjust the level of assist and it is also speed sensitive and will firm up at higher speeds. Well worth the investment.

All who might be interested....

As mentioned above, the EPAS Electric Power Steering unit has been ordered and received. In anticipation of a potential PITA Pittman Arm removal issue, I have also ordered a Steering Box rebuilt kit in case I need to heat the PA for removal. If I pop the PA with no issues, I will still use the rebuild kit. This unit will be mounted under dash with no appearance issues........I will be interested to see what is inside that column and box. l'll be happy to post a "Step by Step" for this project......With all that being said......the Car is still "For Sale".

Love to see your step by step and may be a good idea to move it to the normal C1/C2 forum. Not sure of all the rules here, but no sense being reprimanded .
