|As anyone who's done a bit of off-roading in a Series knows, the steering system has a much to be desired. This page shows an adaptation of a Land Cruiser power steering box into a Land Rover.
This is a photo of the Rover steering shaft with the worm gear cut off, sleeved and a universal in place to match the intermediate shaft.
|A close-up of the shaft sleeved and fitted with a universal joint.|
|The steering column together with the shaft inside. Note the zerk for a bronze bushing in the bottom.|
|Another picture of the shaft and column together.|
|The frame rail drilled, coated with zinc primer and ready to accept the mounting plate for the steering box.|
|I've caught a lot of shit for this...It's panel bonding adhesive to add a little strength and corrosion protection between the plate and frame rail. There are also 5 grade-8 bolts through the frame and into a backing plate on the inside.|
|Said plate in place.|
|The steering box, steering shaft and column in place with the power steering hoses.|
|Another view of the box in place.|
|Here are the heavy steering arms and tie-rod ends in place.|
