Hey guys.

I've got a challenge on my `60 Dodge D100. It has steering by "Armstrong" so I want to retrofit it with power steering. The problem is, power steering wasn't an option on these trucks. I can retrofit a pump on the mid-sixties Poly Block I have in it, but the linkages and suspension components aren't available that I know of.  I'm not sure if there are individual components I can combine to accomplish this.

I've thought of slinging a early to mid-sixties Ford axle under it but I'm not sure about matching the tracking width.

I've also considered retrofitting an early eighties Diplomat or Aspen/Volare sub-frame which would give me power steering and disc brakes. Of course, the latter is a bigger project.

Any creative ideas would be greatly appreciated.  
Rescuing Betsy!
