Also drilled in 3/16th key pins around the circumference between the 2 parts that got welded over. It should hold until I do the axle swap. Probably the strongest part in the steering.

First try was to used a taper bushing on the newer pitman arm. Sky offload knuckle taper sleeve has the right dimensions for this.
That didn't quite work as it's too short and the angle of drop hit the track bar bolt turning left. I don't know if that would happen on a oem track bar bracket or not, as I've got a drop bracket from bds.

That is quite in depth but a good fix. Are the 05-16 pitman arms a 1.5 taper? Does anyone happen to know the thread pitch on the 99-04 drag link?

I figured it out, at least part of it.

When you drill the frame (2001 frame) to accept the 16mm bolts, the drill drifted down a small amount on the upper front hole. I'll get that straightened out and things should be fine.

oh i recall dealing with that. those reinforcements inside the frame skewed the bit over.
It was the upper hole on mine, I was getting confused as to why I hadn't gone through yet. I stopped, shined a light and had made a pretty good dimple next to the hole.

Glad you got it sorted.

Searching for part number 8C3Z-3504-B (I used a 2015 6.7 F350 as my "check if it fits" truck model), all the Ford parts websites seem to indicate that it has been replaced by part number HC3Z-3504-E (for example, https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/For...8C3Z3504B.html ).

However, the physical pictures posted with HC3Z-3504-E look different than the photos of the 8C3Z-3504-B gear assy posted in this thread.

https://www.tascaparts.com/oem-parts...mbly-hc3z3504e
https://www.getoemparts.com/oem-part...mbly-hc3z3504e
https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/for...HC3Z3504E.html





It looks more "stubby" if that makes sense.


Has anyone used the HC3Z-3504-E on an earlier truck, or any reason it would not work? Am I better off looking for a new old stock of the 8C3Z-3504-B ?? Thanks for any feedback!!!!

I didn’t cross reference the part numbers but the picture you have is of a F-450-550 box.

Any updates on this swap? Actual results with the steering linkage from column to box, power steering lines?

My 02 has 321k miles on it and needs a box. I have swapped over to a 2008 front axle so my drag link will bolt up to the newer pitman arm. Blue top, redhead, oem 99-04 box or 11-16 box is the question.

Just read this whole post. There is so much going on between model years, it's hard to figure out what fits what and what parts are needed for what year truck. It'd be nice if there was a year by year breakdown of parts needed to do the swap.
I have an 06. From what I gather (probably wrong) to put a 16 box in, I need the steering shaft from firewall to box, other than that and maybe bolts, everything else bolts up. Am I missing anything?

So far this is a worthwhile upgrade. The newer steering gear is just better all around. If my salvage yard box starts to go, I plan on getting the same year box from someone reputable like bluetop. If I had a core, I would have gone that route to begin with.
For the hoses I used jic adapters and hydraulic lines.

That sounds right. I can't speak for the 06 hoses to & from the gear. Maybe someone else will chime in on that part.
