    Thanks Chad
    I now have a better idea of the set up. One last question for you. What do you think of these vintage trucks as daily drivers? I mean as a driver for someone retired and not fighting traffic everyday?

    That would be a good one to ask others. I have not swapped mine. This is a pic of any 1961-1966 F250 4x4 and F350. If you can see the column circled in blue - 3 pieces, but it is really one piece that goes from the nut that holds the steering wheel on all the way into the steering box itself circled in green. To go to true power steering you would need a different steering box and so the entire column is typically changed out.

    There is also "power assist" systems like the later Ford Garrison unit. It attaches to the drag link instead.

    Sounds like it would be a fine way to go. You will probably want to just swap out the steering column since the 1965 and 1966 F350 and earlier all used the Gemmer style steering box where the shaft goes straight into the gear box with no coupling.
