    I have previously had the power box and it is a good upgrade from a manual box, the number of steering wheel turns are reduced to about 3.5. There is still a bit of wander and the need to continually correct.

    I fitted that r&p and it drives like a new car. Steering turns are about 2.75. No wander.

    You pays your money, etc.

    cheers i may be tempted by the rack and pinion, i presume the 2.75 is the steering ratio ?? cheers dan

    I meant lock to lock with the steering wheel.

    If you can find a power box over here from 1970 to about 1989? you can just buy the bracket from the States. They seem to be getting harder to find.
