I too ave suggested adoption in a past post that seemed to get passed over.
Model T Ford box.
They were small, and mounted at the top of the column with 4 to 1 ratios (1926 -27 had 5 to 1)
They are plentiful in my back yard.

Thanks for adding that to the list here. I don't recall reading that, but I may have not made note of it (in my noggin) because I don't have access to one of those.

I have extremely little experience with Model T's (A guy gave me a ride on his running chassis on his city street in Wichita Kansas back in 1975 - that's it), so I'm curious, how was it connected from the sector on down?

Model T's are different from most systems, as the steering shaft hooks directly to the pitman arm at the bottom, running through a box (that is basically a big bushing bolted to the frame at the bottom) then the shaft has a triangular shaped plate at the top with three pins that support the tree planetary gears inside the brass box at the top with internal teeth acting as the sun gear. A centre stub shaft goes through the cap to attach the steering wheel (it has the centre drive gear attached).
Sounds complicated when described, but was actually a very simple set up.
T parts are still very available and easy to obtain.
