Re: California Rod And Customs 68 C-10 build

Oh my. That is some epic fab work.

Just curious, I see the hydroboost behind the dash, and the lines to the pump, and rack and pinion, but how did you manage to get the steering wheel to act on the steering? Trying to figure out the linkage in my head, and I keep hitting a wall.

Love how you routed the hard line and tied them into the braided line. The use of hard coolant pipes really cleaned up the engine compartment.

Great work.

You're using a purely hydraulic steering system, aren't you.

Yall using a Saginaw style pump? What kind of valving are you using at the steering wheel, and did you have to do any modifications to the valves in the pump?
