    Ok -- I worked really hard to get the steering better on my 68 and after thousands on steering and handling upgrades it still like to go to the right on its own and then I correct and it floats to the right. It is frustrating when you are going down the highway at 70 mph. Then add some wind ... well you know.

    Now my '70 is doing the same thing. These have all been power steering cars ...

    Any and all thoughts would be great.

    Thanks

    Sounds like the caster is not correct ,but the ram and valve assembly on the power cars is really not all that great either .If the valve assembly is loose inside or worn it will cause it to have slack in the wheel and that will cause you to have to correct the steering constantly .

    does that make sense even though it doesn't do it constantly?

    Is there a lot of play in the box? rock the steering wheel back and forth see if there is play in the pitman arm.
