Electric power steering: 1933 chevy coupe

Hello I am new to the forum. I am considering buying a hotrod that has a mustang II rack and pinion front end . I have just heard of EPS.I wonder can I buy an electric power steering unit that would fit and make it easier to steer in my soft Georgia dirt drive and parking space. Or is that just for newer cars ?

Thanks to anyone who can answer this

Phil

If you have manual the conversion to power is not all that hard..Just need the pump and hoses and the correct steering rack.. Electric Power Steer has not as yet been adapted to our hotrods..

At work we built a '39 Ford sedan for a customer and used the Unisteer electric steering due to limited room in the engine bay for traditional power steering. It takes up quite a bit of space under the dash, but other than that we have no complaints.

Sorry, I'm way up here in St. Paul, Minnesota. I'm sure there are capable shops in the Atlanta area, but I don't know anyone to recommend.

You might contact Unisteer and see if they have any dealer/installers in that area.

Good luck...

Sam I have given up on electric power steering . (not enough room for me .) Now I am back on the idea of traditional PS.
I mentioned in passing my desire for power steering to a mechanic acquaintance of mine . He said there would be a lot of cutting and welding to be done along with the belts pump and setup about a thousand dollars . Your opinion please . thanks

Since you have the MII rack now you may be able to change it out for a power rack. Check with Speedway and take the end to end measurement to make sure the new rack bolts in. Also check the measurements on the mounting bolts. On the engine assuming you have an sbc you will need a pump which ca be sourced from a wrecking yard and the hoses. you will need a restrictor to allow the proper pressure from the sbc pump to the ford rack.

Depending on your skill level this can be weekend bolt on project. I have no clue as to what may be needed on you particular rig as to welding a fabrication..
