I bought the kit for existing P/S equipped mustangs and purchased a rebuilt Ford style pump to insure everything was new. The integral steering box installed wihout any trouble, once I loosened up my tri-y header. The rag joint was a little tight as it almost protruded into the firewall opening ( 66 C code coupe). Once I cut down the column tube, everyrhing went back together okay. Took some wiggling to get the tube to seat properly and additional cutting to maintain clearance for installing steering wheel. Operation with the Ford pump was no problem but the pump whined horribly. Don’t know if this was a quality issue with rebuilt pump or overtaxing from the steering box. Ended up buying a pump conversion kit from Borgeson and it solved the problem. Steering feel and response seems to be much better.
