Anyone have experience with disconnecting the power steering on their Mustang? I'd like to get rid of the twitchy vague steering feel typical of the time they were made. I saw an adapter in one of the parts catalogs for this purpose. Anyone ever used it or something like it?

Thanks

Walt

I haven't used one of the adapters that replace your power steering control valve. But odds are the sloppy feeling you are getting is in the steering box, Flaming River sells a new box that should make your steering tight as new.

Power steering?

Who needs it? My 100 pound, 5'2" daughter has been "muscling" her '66 around without it for two years now

The P/S in my '67 Shelby 350GT is neither twitchy nor vague, but the ratio and Pitman arm may be different from a stock '67. I think the pump pulley is larger diameter, too.

OK, I'm convinced to do away with the power (the gear box is not that loose) so what do I do? Just remove the belt and go? Is this going to continue to work the valve and the rest of the PS system eventually causing trouble?
