    Cool Power Steering

    I've seen a few setups that could be used for power steering in our vans. GMC equinox electric steering can be used for our vans. Lately, Ive been talking to a friend about using a honda prius electrical steering column. He has one in his A-100 and I am goin to get the complete parts list and inspecting his setup closer before I start on mine.

    I have an electric power steering set up in my 69 90, which came out of
    a nissan versa i think an 07 it only took three wires to hook up , the module
    that controls it is already remote mounted so no mods were needed to the harness
    just a bat pos a bat ground and 1 ignition feed wire, this is the second year of daily
    driving it with no issues.

    Tom(Millwright71) put one out of a Saturn Vue (lots in yards) in his 66 LS build. He also put one in my 68 G-20 I got from Mark(108 Van guy) pics don't show much, but works Great.
    Anybody that's got a Long one(Van that is) knows what a pain it is backing up, and trying to turn wheels
    Tom said I didn't need stock Monster wheel. He was Right, Turn with one finger (Not middel one) now

    Thatís a nice clean look!

    Nice job with the metal fab to clean things up! I would also like to see more on the install to go the same route!

    Tilt wheel?

    Did you add the tilt when you went Electric assist?

    I am so green with envy. You guys can seemingly do anything.
    It is very impressive to see what has been done with success to bring our earlies into the modern age. If I had the talent I would be right behind you guys getting power steering etc.
    I cant imagine being able to turn my van with one finger. It takes everything these arms have just to get her backed up and turned.
    If any of you have a clone to send my way, I would really appreciate it! Great work being done out there!! WOW
