you will probably have to remove it to look for a part number, then you can do a google search with it.

This will be your main problem with the car, trying to track down the bits that aren't OEM.

Have you contacted Janspeed and asked if they have details on everything that was changed/added/deleted for the conversion?

Might just yeild all the part numbers you'll need.

Lovely weather to work on the car today. I started to investigate the problem with the power steering. First off was to get rid of all the old power steering fluid for which I know is the wrong type.

Quite simple to do really. Unbolt the reservoir and disconnect the return hose to it. Then tip up the reservoir and pour into a bottle. Next, jack up the front axle off the ground, pop the return hose into the bottle and move lock to lock. Then again while the car is running. Connect everything up, fill and go from lock to lock to bleed the system.

Now that I have the correct green HSMO in there, which is a lot thinner that what was in there before, it has not sorted the problem. But I have diagnosed it...I think.

The power steering pump has been moved onto the opposite side of the engine, and uses a pulley type pump instead of the normal gear driven one. When I turn the wheel and put load onto the pump, the plate is flexing and causing the belt to slacken off and slip. Which is why my steering is very heavy. As you can see in the picture, the plate looks quite Heath Robinson. Looking at the shape of it, no wonder it is flexing. I think the pump is still okay though, as there is no sign of leaking and it turns freely by hand. I'll be jumping on the mill next week and machining up a much thicker plate and tensioner. Unfortunately, due to the space and obstructions, I cannot alter the profile.

That is in fact power steering fluids.

Not too hard to fix then at least?

Have you driven it yet btw?

Does it have SLS still fitted? Looks like it has the pump on the front of the engine?

Regarding charging the PS fluid. Have you check which rack you have fitted? Its possible the rack has been changed for a later one?

I've drove it too work to do the dash but as I haven't got the road tax yet, I'm wary of driving it any further.

I don't actually know about the SLS. I will have to check this out tomorrow. Tbh, it hadn't crossed my mind.

I believe it is the original rack. Looking through all the service history, there is no mention of a change. Although it had had 2 new diffs from Jaguar.
