I’ve got a 50 Plymouth Suburban wagon built on a 78 Volare chassis. I want to swap the power steering for manual. Any advice on finding a good used or rebuilt box? Anything else need to be changed to make the swap?

Luckily, a manual box from any A, B, E or F-body is the same. There was different ratios.

About all you should need is either a manual steering shaft OR a power to manual shaft adapter. Firm Feel has them and possibly some other places as well.

Column Adapter (Power-to-Manual)
