Default Which manual rack for 68 Chevelle?

Kind of stumped on this one.. Built my own mounts and used a manual Mustang II rack from Speedway thinking it would work out. The rack is only 3 turns lock to lock and with stock steering arms it comes nowhere near close to turning far enough.
What manual rack do i need that has enough travel?

This one.




Sorry, but you will never make a rack and pinion work better than the stock linkage with a good box in that application. It can't be done.
