Power Steering setup for a 82 Hilux

Power Steering setup for a 82 Hilux

Postby ap7 » Wed Jul 07, 2010 4:49 pm


I am after a complete power steering setup for my 82 Hilux. It is getting hard to turn the steering with 35's on!

My hilux details are as follows:

- RN46 (1982 Hilux)
- Holden 253 engine



As I am a novice, I would prefer a kit or if someone can help me fabricate it I would be most appreciative!

Also, would be interest in a disc brake conversion for the Hilux if anyone can help?

Contact Matt @ Phats4Runners in Gosford, he breaks Gen1 4Runners, same running gear. He also does engine conversions V6 & V8s into these trucks so he should be good for some advice.
I got my power steering set up from him, he's a sound guy, very helpful, and his prices are very fair. He'll also help you with the brakes.
He's on Ebay http://myworld.ebay.com.au/phats4runners/
Or phone him: 0432274467

Hope this helps.

Just use steering box off 85 model an holden pump.You can get brackets to mount the pump on either side of motor,an box should bolt straight on.(you may have to use part of the steering column shaft from the 85 as well)
You will have to get the hoses made up to suit ,any hydraulic shop can make these up for you
