    Looking at getting a new steering gear box and all new front end components for my 73 SE. I found Bergman's Borgeson kit, but want to confirm the Bergman no cut coupler takes the place of the 73 only rag joint and coupler?
    Thanks

    If anyone is curious, i did call Peter and sadly, no, his no cut coupler does not work on 73 models. Said my options were to get a 71-72 shaft, or send him the shaft to somehow adapt it. Going to research further options now.

    I just worked on a prototype to do this. Hopefully I'll be testing this over the next week or so. Its a simple part that replaces the lower cast part that goes to the steering box now. 73-74 guys will rejoice, because if this works right it will be the easiest of them all to swap!
