Ok guy between my whip lash and now issue with my right shoulder (doctors still not sure if the joints inflamed or it related to the whiplash injury or nerve damage) any way bottom line is the Capri will need power steering. I know 2.8 & 3.0 had it and there is a Tickover kit for the pintos. Is there any other kits alternatives etc? its even the case my L200 steering is feels heavy along with both my ford transits so its defo me that has the issue.
I think that Burton Power might also do a conversion?
But have you tried the usual tricks to lighten the steering, as they do work, i.e. keep to standard width tyres (this made a massive difference on mine as it came with incorrect 205 tyres on), have pressures on the high side, maybe roller top mounts too?
I just been looking at this myself .I have decided that making a new X member and rack mounts ( to aid making/fitting Rover V8 ) is going to be easier than altering everything else so I am going for a Mazda RX8 electric rack ( its all on the rack not the colum ) , and I can get one here for about 80 gbp.
I have the patience of a saint ........Saint cnuty Mc Fuckoff
Not another one to repeat what is above, but the Corsa C conversions are very cheap especially if you source the main guts from a donor car and are willing to do work. I am holding onto my scrappy Corsa C just in case there bits like that i need when i get my Capper going!
Plans have changed to just make a good fun Track Car
