hi Tony looks like you are groundbreaking here as I dont see many replies but if you check archives in here youll find some guys are really into the mods and have some fantastic projects afoot.I personally would advise you to get ford approved or guinuine ford parts for such a crucial part of the stearing and as these are so finely balanced stearing motors even the slightest difference can make them useless and for the sake of the extra bobs why not drive in confidence or part parity s
