      Will a manual steering gearbox from a 66 barracuda work on a 65 barracuda that has a power steering box???
I know the steering columns are  different.  How can I make an extention to join the power column to the manual gear box???     Would this manual gearbox work on a 72 duster also with power steering ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ;D ;D

Yes, it should from the 66 to the 65.  There  is a year range where the pitman arms are going to be different, not sure on the 72.

The power steering and manual steering couplers are different (the input shafts are different size - power is smaller). the steering shafts in the column are differnet lengths, too.
I went from power to manual on my BB setup. I loosened the column under the dash, and pushed it in about 1.5 inches, it fit! I cant remember if I changed out the coupler lower half or not, but it slid right in. Its just a little farther from the seat now. Cool!
