Great work Chris,
in an earlier post you mention doing a bearing modification to the lower part of the steering column.
Why is this done, and would you still do it if you were running power steering?

Yes the bearing mod. Basically the bearing is just a general improvement over the factory Torana bearing (at it's current age). It's intended to make the steering slightly smoother, some people report an improvement but it may be negligible I am yet to find out, as I have not re-installed the column into the car yet. I did the modofication as I re-built the whole front end as I wanted everything serviced and working as good as new. Your best bet is to feel for any play in the bearing and make the decision to replace it or not. It's not too difficult, and I feel its good piece of mind to replace older parts that may have signs of wear

I'm going to strip the column anyway, so if it's just a changeover I might as well change it while I'm there.
