Hey was woundering if it’s a big job going from non power steering to a power steering setup. What rack do I need to buy is it as easy as swapping them over ?
I had the opportunity recently for my daughter’s g202 with a power steering rack pump and filler from a g203 f2 charade and while it looked like it would be relatively straight forward I chose not to bother even though it was the perfect opportunity with both cars not having an engine in it etc.
The reason I chose not to was I really don’t think it is necessary for this car. The steering is light and is no where near as bad as what a mira or move is lock to lock. I think it is just a little more something to fix or take off if something goes wrong with it. But thats just me.
If you want to do it find a g200 or 203 (doubt a g202 would have it) withe everything on it take it all off and replace yours. I would undo the steering column and then take all the frame around the rack and rack ends also. I would take all that as it would be easier than sliding the rack out. This way its just undo 4 big bolts from memory but it is heavy. Grab everything you need for bolt up the pulley including any bracket’s and of coarse the fluid filler.
about to do this myself, easiest way is get everything, and i mean everything possible,from another g200, then yes it is straight swapover but you will need an alignment after. might need to put 2 holes in the inner guard for reservoir also
Will a 1990 applause setup work ?
would be close but couldnt say for sure without seeing an applause setup again.
@evilhighway Did you figure out a rough total cost for all parts? I’m considering this at the moment with the engine currently out.
I never used it and everything was from an f2 wreck that I helped wreck so I never had a cost on what it would all cost.
I haven’t sourced a setup yet powersteering setups are very hard to come but in Tasmania. Little own a g203 being wreck if a applause would work I could of had it done
