Re: Electric steering

Just to give an update. Pictures of assembly and installed. I love it one hand steering in tight spots.
No interference with clutch or brake.

Re: Electric steering

I got good advice from Barm member Tom (Angledrive) and I am going with a kit from epowersteering.com. Good advice and reasonable price. I will in time let you know how it works.

Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

I will try the 2by4 on my next build. Engines I have run on my stand have all been good runners.

Re: 1939 coupe project

Based on the grill and front of the car it is a Standard. I don't know the history of this car. I did think the steering wheel looked like a top of the line version.
