    Power Steering for my Sumo mk3

    Hi All,

    I’m interested in fitting power steering to my mk 3 Sumo. From reading posts on here and also talking with a few people, I believe I need a Corsa C PSU (due to the angled supports in each foot well that restrict the space around the steering column on a mk3, so a C is better fit than a B I’ve been told)

    So parts wise I am closer to understanding what I need. However if someone has already gone through converting to powering steering and have any advice they could share, I’d be eternally grateful!

    Thanks for reading and many thanks in advance,

    Dave

    I’m intending to put a Sierra power rack in my mk2 run off the Ford pump.

    You could try calling Jerry Shepperd of Colyton Garage - he has a Pilgrim and has fitted power steering to my Dax , a Cobretti , and his own Cobra to name but a few
    Pm me if you want his contact details

    Thanks for the replies. I got in touch with Jerry a few months back for advice, but he hasn’t been in touch for a while. So thought I best start looking elsewhere, rather than hassling him.

    I’m in the process of fitting a corsa b to my ram. The c is a much bigger unit to fit but still could have gone in I think.

    The advantages I saw for the b were
    1. Smaller size
    2. Ease of getting shafts and uj to fit between the end of the column and the steering rack, I don’t need to modify the column at all, it’s all in the external components. I struggled to find off the shelf components to fit the C.
    3. No motorlita boss available for the C column, mind you the boss for the b is bloody expensive.

    Thanks Roger, interestingly I was told the “C” ECU can be mounted remotely, so was preferred due to limited space.

    Photo of both b and c columns

    c ecu can be demounted but the cable to the motor is only slightly longer than the b.

    Ah ok thanks for the picture Roger, that’s a really useful comparison.

    I’d be very interested in understanding all the parts needed as to be honest, I’m a complete newbie to making this modification. I didn’t build my Sumo, but have been told it’s a relatively simple mod. My Sumo has Granada running gear.
