First post, been lurking for a long time though! I'm hoping someone is able to tell me how many turns lock to lock the steering is in a stock '63??

Reason is I have the steering box out being rebuilt/modified and they're able to alter it to take into account the larger wheels/tires to stop them hitting the fenders at full lock, one of the dimensions they asked for was original turns lock to lock which I missed getting....

Any help would be appreciated!!

I do not have the answer but very interesting that that qqservice is available
First time i know of altering the steering box for the tire rub


Yeah it'll be interesting to see how it turns out, they're going to rebuild it with a different ratio and 'firm feel valving' as well so it'll basically be like a late model chev silverado etc. They're very well regarded so fingers crossed!

i believe its 3 or 3.5 lock to lock. 1 full turn plus half to the left and one full turn plus half to the right.

Cool thanks Chris!!

Unless you're sideways in the wet with oncoming traffic, then its about a 100 turns lock to lock. :-)
