Thanks guys for your in depth comments about steering geometry.

Maybe I'm missing something. Please explain. The readily available rear steer rack and pinion's body is 19 1/2" long.

The distance between the inside ends of the tie rods is 19 1/2" see pic;

'69 230 build w/LQ4 swap-image.jpeg

So it is within ability to mount the R&P in exactly the same location as the ends of the tie rods ends.

So what am I missing that I should review and calculate?

FYI, the shipping weight on the Flaming River R&P I'd like 23lbs, just the old steering box weighs 35lbs. This doesn't include all the bracketry associated.
