  1. So after 30 plus years of ownership and just plain tired of muscling this muscle car, I made the decision to convert my manual steering Mach 1 to power steering. The car is a base Mach with a 351, manual brakes and a 4 speed, no AC I looked at several options, from converting to electric (discarded this idea as I would have had to cut the steering column and the cost would have been over $1,500), using a Borgeson unit (discounted this due to some feedback on possible fitment issues) - which in the end, left me with sourcing an OE set up. After a month or so of research, I was able to source all of the parts needed. While not a cheap conversion and hours of preparation, sandblasting and painting, I am glad I made the change. For those that may be interested in making such a change, I’ve listed the parts needed and my sources. One suggestion - when sourcing crank and water pump pulleys, be sure to get them from the same car, or ensure that you get the correct cast date numbers.
