    My 70 Z28 has manual steering and I want to convert it to power steering. What center link and pitman arm do I use? The power steering box I purchased is cast 5691576 and came with a pitman arm cast 7826315. Will the original manual steering center link work with this power steering pitman arm or do I use the pitman arm that is for manual steering? I did a search on this and I'm still confused? Thanks. Randy

    I believe the centerlink is the same for power vs manual.

    Where are you located? I am interested in the old manual box.
    Shoot me a pm.

    The pitman arm on the manual steering box is #3964881. Do I use this one with the power steering box?


    And to everyone asking about the manual steering box, it's not for sale, I want to keep it with the car.
