power steering
« on: October 01, 2016, 11:39:06 AM »
G'Day I have a 1979 bedford converved to a ice cream van in Western Australia. I was going to put power steering on it and came up with a xc barina electric power steering set up It seams to measure up OK Has anone thought or tried this Idea out and if so could give some tips on how or what is needed. This would only involve the colume and the computer I think.
 I will do the conversion myself

My solution was:

VE Rack (holden rodeo tie rod ends, mazda miata tie rods)
Holden Astra Electric power steering pump (requires 80A fused feed)
130A Alternator

had to make one flat bracet and one 45 odd degree bracket to adapt it to the k member, search for "my power steering install" on this site.
