Does anyone have any experience with or knowledge of those adapters that convert a PS set-up to manual by replacing the valve body. They seem to be everywhere and reasonably priced ( $ 125-150). Are there any negative effects on the other components? Is it really just a straight swap where you retain the original centerlink? I'm waiting on one from Virginia Mustang, so i guess I shoulda asked BEFORE I ordered but I wasn't crazy about the "loose" steering and it sounded like a good approach.

Again, thanks and Happy Mustangin...

I installed a converter in my '69. Haven't driven it yet, but the installation was easy with the engine out. Don't know what it'd be like with the engine in.

Good luck,

I took my control valve apart and modified it so it would be basically be soild so there would be no play in the steering

$125 to $150??

For that money just replace the tie rod center link and pitman and idler arms and make it a proper manual setup.
