Our power steering conversion is quite unique, it is the only power steering conversion available that will give you 3 turns from lock to lock, not the usual 4 turns that manual and other power steering conversions steering have, we found that with 4 turns the steering was over powered and to light at speed, so with our unique steering system we have made the steering with more feel and slightly heavier. Land Rover models with power steering have 3 turns lock to lock.
We use the P38 Range Rover ZF power steering box, far more reliable than the Adwest box, this is fitted using our special mounting plates to be welded to the chassis, the steering box is then bolted on the outside of the chassis and therefore does not require the front chassis cross member or the front panel to be altered in any way. This allows Turbo intercooled Diesel engines being fitted so there is room for the intercooler, radiator and oil coolers etc.
(Note Customers with a Galvanised chassis fitted we recommend to MIG weld the plate to the chassis. Grind off the galvanised area to be welded, about 12mm clear of the weld area. The fumes from welding on galvanised steel are quite toxic. On the vertical edges, vertical down would be the best method, ensuring good penetration to the chassis. To weld the hole in the middle again, vertical down. The top, bottom welds are straight forward. Then weld in the gussets. An experienced welder would probably do it this way any way. Clean up the welds after removing any deposits with a wire brush, then paint with Galvofroid paint or some other zing rich paint. Treat the inside of the chassis with Waxoyl or some other cavity treatment)
The battery tray on Right Hand drive models will need moving under the seat or a suitable location as the Range Rover P38 steering box will not fit with the Series battery box in it’s standard location.
We use the Land Rover 90/110 steering column assembly and steering wheel for this conversion. We can now supply ready made covers for the new steering box and steering column. See related items below.
This Is Not A Full Power Steering Kit As The Customer Will Need To Supply Their Own Major Components See below.
It Is Designed To Be Used With Conversion Engines That Have Power Steering Pumps Fitted As Standard
If a standard 2¼ petrol or Diesel engine is fitted
We now have a kit available to fit an Electric-Hydraulic Power Steering Pump Kit for Right Hand Drive and Left Hand Drive Models see links SPCK339EPKR for Right Hand Drive

ADDITIONAL PARTS REQUIRED FOR THIS CONVERSION
- Range Rover P38 steering box
- P38 universal joint coupling shaft
- P38 Power steering pipes (Petrol or Diesel)
- Power Steering Pipe from the power steering pump on the engine being fitted or already fitted (e.g. 200Tdi or 300Tdi V8 Etc.) that goes to the power steering box
- Brown plastic PAS Fluid reservoir and mounting bracket (Preferably P38 one)
- Power Steering Pump if not fitted to the engine already (e.g. 200Tdi or 300Tdi V8 Etc.)
- Steering column assembly with brackets, complete with Steering Wheel from a Land Rover 90/110, (note there are 2 different splines on the steering columns so you need the steering wheel to match)
This conversion is suitable for Left Hand Drive models.
If the conversion is done neatly, the installation will look original and not like a conversion.
We are working in conjunction with Richards Chassis, so you can order a chassis from them with P38 power steering box mounting plate welded and gussets to the chassis before it is galvanised.
