How-To Add Power Steering & Tilt Column For 1960-66 Chevy Trucks

January 8th, 2018

The tech center over at Classic Trucks put together a great How-To series working on their ’64 Chevy C10 pickup. Of course they came to Performance Online for expert advice when starting the C10 build.  Our staff at Performance Online listened to the long-term goals for the project and outlined a clear path for them to get there.  They came to us for the parts they need to get this C10 rolling in high gear!  This build should drive fantastic when they’re through with it.  They’ve done a great job with the truck so far!  Here’s an excerpt of the full article published on

The next stage of the truck’s transformation was to add a power steering kit from Performance Online. This navigational update was done in preparation for an engine swap that would replace the inline-six and three-speed trans with a much livelier small-block Chevy V-8. The power steering would be quicker and lighter than the stock manual box, making the truck much more enjoyable to drive.

Performance Online’s power steering conversion kit for 1960-1966 Chevy and GMC trucks is available for small-block, big-block, and 235 six-cylinder applications. The kit bolts on minimal modifications to the truck and includes the power steering gearbox (standard or quick ratio), gearbox mounting bracket, power steering pump (chrome pumps are an upgrade), power steering hoses (braided stainless hoses are an upgrade), pump brackets, Pitman arm, rag joint, and a stock steering shaft adapter.
