  1. I used the original steering box on my car, it had no power steering. I see no reason why you could not use the same steering box that is already on your car and just remove the hoses to the power cylinder and control valve. you would also have to make a hose to recirculate the fluid in the power steering pump. If you wanted to do a little more work you could remove all of the power steering parts and replace them with parts from a car that didn`t come with power steering. This would not only eliminate some weight from the front end of your car but would definitely get rid of some oil leaks.

  3. Keith, It was nice to speak to you yesterday by phone, but to let others know, I can build a complete ready to install steering column with all wiring and relays for $1,000.00 I must have your old steering column sent to me first to modify because I don`t have any of these units built at this time.

That made it even more difficult to install the P/S
  5. Electric Power steering.pdf Please download the PDF above for more detailed information and pictures. I know that I`m not the first person to install electric power steering on an older car, it`s been done many times, but I thought I would show the details of how it was done on my Avanti. I hope it helps to explain the steps necessary to do this if you want to do this on your car.
