if a ford 302, i’d use the AOD if you want an automatic trans. if manual, T5 preferably the would class T5

Wrong box, Jay !!!

Nestor is looking as to how to steer his car.

I’d ask if Nestor was going power or manual ?

As almost everything nowadays is power, manual will have to go back a few years.

If manual, I’d consider the mid 60’s Mustang box. size considerations probably enter there…

indeed. my apologies.
let’s blame that on the exhaust fumes from getting the car fired up last night

Borgeson is a good source, particularly if you’re needing to match different splined shafts.

i’d think flaming river would be a good source.
there is a local place that makes custom racks and axles.
Phoenix Rack and axle, [(602) 252-8255]
they rebuilt the rack on my xj6, and the steering box in my '66 f100. lifetime warranties on both.
i used a flaming river manual rack on my '69 rambler

That CO is exhilarating, but can be deadly!!!
