That may work, but I am trying to do this without any linkage and 100% OEM if I can. There is no u-joint in a 40 power steering setup and I want to keep it that way if possible. The 40 power steering shaft is shorter than a non PS version to account for the larger box. The extra length in a non=ps version should fit perfect.I got 1 in Nevada BTB products in Henderson Nevada sells a extender not sure if will for youhttps://btbprod.com/product/steering-column-coupler-shaft-extension-kit-gm-saginaw-conversion-fj4055-toyota-land-cruiser/
I have the non power steering shaft. i am in the midst of the conversion to a 60 power steering set up. I saw mention of you having the ps shaft..is it telescoping or solid? pics of your setup if you have.. ? thanks -JoePutting a 1HZ in my 40 which has factory PS. I need to extend the shaft about 3cm to clear the starter, and I can do this by simply swapping in a non-power steering shaft. Must be a pre October 1980 40.
