 It may be old car steering, it has a different feeling than rack and pinion steering.

i went with a 605 Box, i had manual steering before so its a real change to get used to.

your box may need adjustment, no more that 4 inches play side to side at the steering wheel and no play when engine running.

I had a local jobber swap my old steering box to 3 turns lock to lock. Jobber was involved in stock car racing and did his magic to my box. Big difference. Cliff

Have you had a wheel alignment done on the car, older cars running radials require 2 degrees additional caster.

maybe someone with a x frame suspension can pipe in with some specs.
