Re: 62 mercury monterey

heres a link for the power steering.Ford Rack and Pinion Conversions, Galaxies, Fords, Mustangs, Custom Steering and you might give these guys a try on the disc brakes 1963 1964 FORD GALAXIE BIG BRAKE 13" ROTOR DISC BRAKES : eBay Motors (item 380214654448 end time Apr-11-10 09:04:13 PDT). they might be able to help you . ive been told that you can use spindles from a 77 tbird or a ltd2 for a conversion to disc brakes on a 63 or 64 galaxie . but im not sure if it will work on a 62 merc

Re: 62 mercury monterey

Hi, All 62 Mercury full size have same suspension as the 62 Ford. Spindles are same for
62, 63, & 64 Ford and Mercs. Therefore any disk brake conversion for 63 & 64 Fords & Mercs would be same for 62 Mercurys. Power steering setups are all they same. Always liked the 62 Mercury, they are not too many around now. About they only difference in the Chassis for the 62 Ford and Merc is the wheel base. Ford is 119" and the Merc 120". Best advice to you is to get yourself a Shop manual...They are on ebay and usually reprints. Its called 1962 Ford & Mercury shop manual. That way you will get all the info you need on your car. Good Luck.
