    I just wanted to share with all you guys that I bought a "big car" 808 quick ratio steering box from Tom t (teleriv) and installed it in my 69 Riv, what a difference it makes! If anyone is looking to improve the steering of your big boats do not hesitate buying one of these boxes from Tom it is money well spent! I will chaulk it up to a "must have" status right along side the JW 9.5 converter upgrade. Thanks a million Tom!!

    Cheers, Bob

    You are VERY welcome Bob. Glad & happy everything worked out to your satisfaction.
    Did it take care of the problem you had with the old box???

    I took it out for a short drive last night and did alot of turning and corners to test it out and it's great. As for the " steering wheel shake" issue I had before that would happen when driving straight for a long period of time, I will take the car for a long drive this weekend and report back here with my results.

    Tom, I took the car out for a nice long drive last night and the steering wheel shake issue is definitely gone! The culprit was definitely the old worn out steering box.

    That's GOOD NEWS Bob!!!! Glad the old box was the problem & NOT something else.
