I need help finding a Manual Pitman arm for my '73 Maverick. Its a 302 C4, it was power but I have the manual canterlink and want to convert over to full manual. If someone could help me out that would be great. Thanks

When I changed over my '71 comet a few years ago, I got my pitman arm from Green Sales in Cincinnati,O. www.greensalescompany.com

Thank God!! I found one. I went down to my local junkyard and was going down the last row of the Fords and there was a yellow '73 with a 6 cylinder with manual steering. I got on my knee's and thanked the Lord.

This may not be the most elegant way to do this, but for lack of finding a manual arm, I plugged the power units hose connections, and then took the endcap off and kept stacking washers on the shaft in there until there until the slack was taken up. Put the endcap back on. There is a small amount of slack in the steering wheel (1-2 degrees), but it has been OK for 20K miles. Also, good luck finding a pulley to drive the water pump. A lot of searching turned up a double pulley on a 2 ton truck that lined the belt up with the crank and alternator.

Oh I had no problem finding a pulley. I happened to have a set of March pulleys on the shelf that were perfect for the job.
