Well I cured the steering linkage issue. I used the pitman arm for a '74 dart it took some slight modifying but it works.

Yeah it was. The linkage was rubbing on the bottom of the left header.

Well the Dart's pitman has a greater drop to it but i had to space it with a couple of shims where the nut goes for the gearbox the pitman is thinner for the dart than for the fury but not by much.
