    Here is what im doing on my G-van ---yet totally adaptable to any of our earlys too.  there are many new youtube videos on this & other conversions.

    Just cut your existing steering shaft & adapt a dd coupler & a saturn vue  electriv steering  box &  wow!!-easy steering !  There is a manon ebay that makes the adapter (electric)  for the box also

    I've read the thread over at VCVC about this. It seems great but I just wonder if the added leverage will overload the steering boxes on these old vans. Waddaya think? Anyone???

    sounds cool. saw a guy earlier this week that put one on his econo. my tires are pretty skinny up front, so I wont be installing one until my shoulders give out. plus, they invade the same space that my column shifter shaft is currently occupying.

    If you guys go over to vcvc I have a thread where I installed this on my 64 GMC. Whole set up is made from used junk yard parts except the the wiring box
