605 steering box conversion for my 62 impala
i got a 62 Impala Wagon i want to do a 605 conversion but having a tough time finding what box to use,i got the bracket,draglink,etc,just need the box ,does anybody have part # for the box i should use,i know they are from early 80's montes and malibu's,but don't know which style,they list 3–4 different ones for those years of cars. Any help would be appreciated Thanks
i am out of Canada so i would like to get one here at a locall parts store if i could to avoid huge shipping costs. Thanks again
605 from 84 Monte Carlo. You need the C-ring top box. 605 IS that box. Check this site http://www.carsteering.com/…2-00277.html
I started using 600 boxes, had WAY too many problems with the 605
Whats the 600 box from?I might stick with the 605 for now?For the 600 do you use the same bracket as the 605?Thanks Mickey and gearheead for these quick responses.
not sure what cars they come off, I get ‚em @ C.A.R.S. Inc. As far as I recall the brackets are same. They are vertually the same but built better and don‘t leak as much.
605 box on my 62 Belair is leak/problem free for 5 years.
Mickey.........you have a good box there…hold on to that one.
Call 800) cars inc. ask what the use/sell… the 600 box. Most people do nowadays…better quality
I've got a 59 Chevy pickup I would like to do a 605 upgrade on. Is this possible
59–64 full size chevrolet is the same conversion. The center link is different on the old style PS cars. They even make an adapter for that. Impala Bobs, Cars, Show-cars, Ecklers all have the brackets or kits.
Not sure what the trucks used.
Try the 600 gear box, made by Borgeson, which CARS INC carries for the 1962 Impala. It is a new gear boxes.
