One of the most obvious shortcomings of
the M35-series trucks is the lack of power or power-assisted steering,
sometimes referred to as "Armstrong Steering" for obvious
reasons. Upgrades to remedy this haven't been exactly owner-friendly, as
you have to do a tremendous amount of legwork to put the pieces and parts
together, try to find an M35A3 to cannibalize the air-assist steering
parts from, or pay a very hefty price tag for the few power assist kits
on the market. Add to that the fact that there isn't much room for a
belt-driven power steering pump on an M35-series truck, larger tires
really make slow-speed steering difficult, plus there are so many
variations of power steering pumps to choose from, and you've got quite a
dilemma to overcome.
