Rover Rebuild of 2002
|The first step for me was to notch my frame rail. I had to do this so that when the box got mounted, the steering arm wouldn't hit the underside of the frame. After everything was completed I completed boxed the cut.|
|I then drilled some holes and bolted up the gear box.|
|I took the GM tilt column from the donnor vehicle and shortened it so it would fit in the rover.|
|I used a
combination of parts from the GM linkage and the Scout linkage to make up
the steering shaft. After it was in I was able to test out
everything and ensure everything was working properly.
I then contacted Flaming River and ordered a new steering shaft.
|The Flaming river shaft is a stainless steel slip joint with nickle plated steel ends. The ends feature needle bearing u-joints.|
|The final step was to make up custom stainless lines for all the power stearing lines and install the power steering fluid cooler.|
