Wowzers! That’s an unusual one for sure.
Factory bronco steering box it looks like, with an extended sector shaft with lower bearing support.
Very very interesting…
Very interesting as in probably needs to be corrected!

Kind of reminds me of the Lee Saginaw box with the extended sector shaft:

AGR/Steerco is now doing something similar with the 800 series Saginaw boxes for EBs as well.

But yours takes the cake! A real hard way to get around the drop pitman arm.

If you decide to disassemble it, I'm sure we'd love to see how they did the internals on it. Maybe they used the long van sector shaft that Viperwolf mentions.

FYI, a carb will not work directly on that manifold. Need an EGR plate (or a delete plate) to plug the EGR passage.
You will also need to address the PCV system. As it stands now there is no provision for the PCV valve
Gotcha. Anyone have a parts list (or a build that I could reference) that could help me get a game plan for building this motor. I have never put one together like this, and think it would be fun, I am just not sure where to begin. Pretty much every project I have ever had has had a running and/or complete motor. Thanks!
