Power steering in a vintage racing Corvette makes the car way easier to drive, and you can run more positive caster with power steering. This is also a faster box; reducing lock-to-lock turns by a fourth. These cars are happiest with 6 or more degrees of positive caster. Unless your driver is a twenty something gym rat, he or she is not going to be able to handle much more than about 4.5 degrees of positive caster in a vintage Corvette without power steering. This is not the original 50's era Corvette power steering set up. It is a new US made quick steer gearbox that incorporates the function of both the original control valve and slave cylinder. We modify the internal valving in the stock racing pump to mute the power steering assist, providing the driver with proper racecar feedback.
The gearbox bolts to the original location and uses the stock pitman arm. The other major component is a modern compact hydraulic pump. We supply the pump, reservoir, pump pulley and standard head cylinder mount. The special high pressure braided stainless steel lines and fittings are included as well. We will email you for some additional information in order to supply the proper cylinder head pump mount. You will have to supply your drive pulley and belt. If you are using stock heads that have no cylinder head mounting holes, let us know and we can make a custom bracket for you at additional cost.
