FST finished installing they hydraulic assist ram on the Pumpkin. I bought the modified steering box from CoryL who originally purchased a kit from www.westtexasoffroad.com.
Cory kept the ram, so FST used a Howe, ram and steel braided hoses. The mounting is all custom fabrication.
At this time the power steering pump is still stock. That won't do as it doesn't have enough oomph to power both systems. It works, but not well smoothly enough.
In testing we put the tire against a wall and pushed pushed the whole truck sideways with the steering! I also made figure 8s in their parking lot with the front ARB locked and it worked... except, I blew the cap off the P/S pump, soaked the exhaust with fluid and actually started a bit of an under the hood blaze! Thank goodness for my well positioned halon fire extinguisher. It had the fire out in seconds with none of that white powder residue.
I'm dropping off a P/S pump core at Benchworks tomorrow. They will do a high performance rebuild on it which will increase the pressure and volume, after that it should be good to go!
