Power steering conversion- Need Help!
I'm am doing a power steering conversion on my 78 cj5. Everything is mounted with the exception of the steering shaft.
The problem I am having is that the power steering geerbox input shaft appears to be 3/4 inch with a 26 spline shaft (I counted the peaks of the spline). I have both bell couplers (manual and power), but neither one fits. The manual coupler appears to be 3/4 inch, but the spline count is way too high. The power steering coupler is too large (approximately 13/16 or 7/8- didn't measure it).
I cannot find a steering u-joint to use. Doesn't appear that anyone makes a 3/4 -26 spline. I am stumped!
The power steering parts came from a jeep only wrecking yard from a later model cj 258i. I didn't pull them, they were already on the shelf, so I have no way to verify the donor year.
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
