Hello, My name is Theo and am from Sweden.
Stoney1r, how much do you know about the saginaw 708 steering box used in the Dodge W200?
Iīm in the process of putting power steering on mine.
I have bought a saginaw 708 power steering box with standard rotation (previous owner found out it didnīt work on his W200, because of steering to the left, but car turning to the right).
Reason I bought this one is, that I might be able to convert this one to reverse rotation with the parts in the manual reverse rotion gear box that is on the car right now, plus it was much cheaper, since he couldnīt use it anymore.
Itīs pretty expensive to have a power steering box shipped over from the US to Sweden.
Since it is only the worm gear that is different (?), do you think it is possible to only swap the parts from the manual box over to the power steering gear box?
In the beginning of this thread, on the first pic it looks like the worm gear is a separate part from the "extension" that supposedly is the "power part".
If you know what I mean.
This is the power steering unit that I bought, Lares reman standard rotation rock auto part# 1074, input shaft 13/16.
Iīm not quite sure what input shaft diameter is on the original manual steering on the truck right now.
If you have a problem with this being a Dodge thing, maybe you can provide with some links to companies that source these parts.
I have emailed Lares corp. and they asked a bunch of questions first to determine what kind of box I had, specs on it and pics, but then suddenly they responded with, "sorry we donīt sell parts that way".
Then why ask a bunch of questions in the first place???
Waisted time for nothing...
Thanks for any reply.
