    Yes thats the one I used, the firewall support uses a large "ball" with tapered plates on either side of the f'wall, its self aligning. The column is described as a 32", I would go a 30" unit if your going aftermarket, and use a double borgeson joint,which is not as critical for alignment purposes. Yes I machine the shaft. its 3/4" and I milled the two flats.
    sorry, never looked at a lark box...is the steering shaft supported by a bushing or bearing below where you cut it off? Did you use the lark pitman arm? this is really grabbing my attention. thanks, junior

      Yes I used the Lark pitman arm and draglink, yes there is a bearing inside. I believe it is basically a GM recirculating ball type box. Full writeup in Bob Johnstone's site
