Fix all of your 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). The motor includes an internal computer that measures the amount of effort applied to the steering wheel and amplifies it with the aid of the electric motor. An included potentiometer should be mounted within arms reach as it allows you to adjust the amount of assistance the motor uses. The potentiometer uses a knob that can be twisted for adjustments on the fly.

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. Although this kit is made to work with the factory steering column, modifications to the steering column are required. The long steering shaft must be cut near the steering box to install the included steering shaft. An upgraded electrical system is not required. Electrical wiring is plug and play except for a required power source and ground.
