Product Description

Electric Power Steering Conversion Kit for 1965-1966 Mustangs.

Tired of fighting to turn your wheels in a parking lot? Sick of the vague steering feel when changing lanes at highway speed? Fix all of these steering problems with an electric power steering conversion. Now you can enjoy modern power steering in your classic car. This kit is great for Mustangs with limited engine space due to big blocks, headers, etc. The entire unit mounts inside the vehicle under the dash and will also work with rack and pinion conversions (with correct u-joint adapter for rack).

An internal computer measures the amount of effort applied to the steering wheel and amplifies it with the aid of the electric motor. A knob controls a potentiometer which allows you to create more or less assistance. For example, you can set maximum power assist while you are in a parking lot, and decrease the assist while on the highway.

Includes:
- Electric power steering motor
- Electronic control box
- Firewall plate for steering shaft support with bearing
- Steering shaft with u-joints
- Wiring harness
- On/off switch
- Potentiometer to adjust the amount of steering assist

This kit will work with both manual and power steering. Ford's factory power steering is an inadequate system and notorious for fluid leaks. Electric power steering does not use any fluid and it is recommended that the factory power steering (if equipped) slave cylinder and control valve be disconnected from the power steering. Installation is rather easy with some cutting, drilling, tapping and wiring required. The long steering shaft must be cut near the steering box to install the included steering shaft. Electrical wiring is plug and play except for a required power source and ground. An upgraded electrical system is not required. All parts are located under the dash and almost completely visible. This greatly aids in the simple installation. Although this kit is made to work with the factory steering column, modifications to the steering column are required.

*If you choose to remove the power steering control valve, center link, inner tie rods, left outer tide rod and left tie rod sleeve, you will need to install manual steering components.

By Bill Tumas: Bill: We’re here with an update on our Project 50-30. Thanks to Ridetech Rod & Custom and Baer Brakes, our front brakes and suspension are pretty much all finished. The next system we're going to work on now is going to be the steering. Josh is going to tell you about the column we are going to use.

Josh: First we got a column from I Did It. It's a nice steel column, it's a tilt, it's going to be for a ... it doesn't have an ignition built into it because we're going to have a dash mount ignition, obviously, on this car. It comes with your handles and everything for your turn signal levers and to control the tilt function. We're going to modify it to add electric steering and Bill will explain that to you next.

Bill: One of our goals in 50/30 is to keep the car modern. We go with the Coyote Power Plant, we figured the modern Coyotes have electric steering, so we're going to do the exact same thing. We use a system here from EPAS. This is going to mount under the dash and actually go in the middle of the column, basically like this, so there will be nothing under the hood visible and this will be completely underneath the dashboard. This is controlled by its processor here, that actually creates electric steering. Uses electricity to actually move the column, to move the rack, which is why we went with the manual rack with the system. Control box here even comes with this controller, allows you to adjust the sensitivity to steering. While both of these parts are perfect for a custom built like 50/30, one of the nice things is it can actually be used on any '65 or '66 Mustang. This column will fit both manual or power steering cars and an excellent way to upgrade to a tilt wheel. Electric power steering kit can be used, again, on a manual or power steering conversion. Gives you a nice upgrade to electric power steering.

Josh: Make sure you stay tuned and subscribe to our You Tube channel for any updates on Project 50-30.
