wow what a tremendous response to my query! This is great!

I am in Baltimore County, MD. I did watch the CJPP video and seen where they file down the shaft for the set screw, but still didn't think that was adequate. I did end up ordering the MS lower bearing for added security, but i have to work on it under the car (quickjack). I will have to remove quite a bit if I tried to get to it from above, and I hope I don't have to do that. I ended up cutting the shaft without issue to get the steering box out. Just not sure I can finish the job 100% from under the car.
I currently have PS, but leaking badly. Considered EPAS but got the Borgeson and new pump as well. Looking forward to cruising without the worry of leaks (at least for the power steering).

Getting hard to locate folks in driving distance willing to take classic mustang work. Alot of chevy shops around, and those that will work on Mustang are too booked to take new work. Anyone know of reputable shops in reasonable distance away, please let me know.
My next job after this one is the TKX 5-speed, and that is beyond my skillset. Looking at Silver Sport Transmissions for that kit.

Hi all,
I am in the middle of the Borgeson power steering upgrade. I already had PS, but leaking badly. I have a 65 fastback, 302 motor, etc. I have read concerns about the shaft pulling out of the rag joint since it's only held together by a few set screws. Didn't realize that til i started investigating install instructions. So the MustangSteve lower bearing is supposed to address this issue, correct? If so, are those still being designed and sold? I am not sure about the U-joints and don't weld. So just looking for simple solution that corrects this concern.

thanks much!
