    one of the guys here took his stock steering gear box and cut off the worm gear parts and capped teh end and just using the stock valves running to a 2x8 cylinder but i think we has looking for a little bigger ram to slow it down some if i remember right. I'll take a pic if it is at the shop.

    what would be the difference? The pump is still turning Rs no matter what is driving it. Unless it was a larger pump on the BBC or something...
