Power to Manual steering


I know it's usually the opposite, but what all is needed to do the swap and what to look for/do? I know obviously get a manual box but is that it? just remove eveything that deals with power steering?

I believe the center link is different so be sure to grab that too.

Manual rack will definitely steer better than plugged power rack, not so sure about gear boxes however

Just disconnect the hydraulic lines. I had manual on my 82, swapped it to 84+ power steer, then blew a line and been leaving it unhooked for over 3 years now.

center link is the same. all you need is the manual box to swap and to remove all the other p/s components. you can leave the power box and just plug the lines but the manual box has a different steering gear ratio and it makes turning easier.

Does anyone know if you can get rebuild parts for the steering box?

Specifically the gears...

My suspension is solid! But in certain steering wheel positions I get a lot of play between the wheel and the box. I don't think I can adjust the crush anymore...

Think the gears are worn in the box?

Yep. sounds like the gears are worn. I'm in the same boat. reman gearboxes are listed from most parts places but I don't know about actual availability. I've seen replacement gears for sale but not rebuild kits with bearings and seals.
