man gear box install

hi guys after a long 8 months of sandblasting, grinding and painting i am finally putting my front end back together. i am up to the point of reinstalling my manual gearbox. how do i line everything up as to pitman arm to steering wheel and tie rods? so that when i turn the wheel it goes equal length in both directions?
thanks
Steven

Re: man gear box install

The pitman arm should be pointing straight forward. At that point, the steering wheel should be straight and level.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:
