Hey guys. I'm looking for the "right" van specific steering column for my 1974 G10 Shorty...
...I spoke with a guy that had a shop that sold rebuild and he started saying the 700R trans are problem plagued????...
*****My immediate need*****
I need a high quality steering column for the auto trans: either a turbo 350 or 700R and I don't want chrome or a column keyed unit.
Does anyone have experience with an out fit called Speedway Motors or Ididit that sells steering columns ?? Thanks Mickey
In my experience, anybody that badmouths a 700R4 just doesn't understand the detent cable adjustment.
I've had several vehicles (and currently have 3) with 700R4s, and I've never had any issues.
They're solid, handle enough power, and last long enough.
(I've currently got two that are at the 180,000 mark.)
I don't have any experience with Speedway (they seem like just an online parts place to me), but I've heard a LOT about Ididit steering columns.
It seems like they are the go to place for car show builds and such.
I've never had any of their stuff, but I've seen it all over the place...
Car shows... magazines... etc.. etc...
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
