      If one just wants power steering and not a r&p then why not use a Saginaw with easy to get parts and adapt an electronic assist motor and accessories. One could leave all the Studebaker parts from the firewall forward and place it under the dash. I know it's not as simple as that but it will be the future.

        I looked at using the "Electra Steer" power steering, but the manufacturer says the total weight of the car is not to exceed 3000 lbs. That and the fact that it's very pricey made me change my mind.

          Yes, it will take some time for larger trucks, pickups, suvs to change over but this looks like the way manufactures will go. Of course the bugs will have to be sorted out before I would seriously spend the time doing it. Also there will have to be plenty in the junk yard, hopefully not due to a steering related problem, for the price to be in reach. It was just a thought.

              Certain late model Chevys and Pontiacs use electric PS from the factory; Grand Am comes to mind.
