I picked up my power steering box yesterday at the bone yard. I got it from a 85 Z28 not IROC just Z. I did the ratio test it went 2-1/2 turns lock to lock. I couldn't find any of the lettering stamped on it like, WS or HX. On a flat spot on the top plate it had 5 letters-#'s 5A 343 could also be SA or 6A does this sound right? Or are the letters somewhere else. I saw no ink stamp lettering. Seems this isn't one of the real good ones but what can I expect from it. Will it work good enough in my 67 camaro. It has to be way better than my manual box. I'm just worried about the stops not being where they need to be for my year camaro. I think I already told David Pozzi most of this but I have a 5-3/8 idler and I'm getting a 5-13/16 p/s pitman arm and I have the short steering arms. Thanks

The ID will be ink stamped. The other numbers won't tell you anything of value.
The 85 Z/28 uses the same ratio, but one step lower effort, which I actually like better for autocrossing. It's still stiff.
With the long pitman and short outer steering arms, you should have full travel.

David,

That's all great news. I paid $50 for it did I do alright? Now all I have to do is get the pump and brkts figured out. Thanks
