That looks good Trevor.

Saw this one the other day that had been done recently. Seeing in person is sooo much more helpful to me than a picture. I wish I had been there to watch the whole process.

With things like this I'm one of those visual, hands on, show me once and I got it kind of learners. I need a class...

If anyone is planning to do one of these near me...let me know so I can watch?

Nice job!

Looks great! I too would like to see how you ran your hoses. I have my steering box installed but haven't run the lines yet. Were you able to keep the original steering wheel?

Which steering shaft did you use? I am in the midst of this right now and can't figure out exactly which one I need to connect my 90/110 column to the P38 box

Make one.
The U joints are readily available and the shafting is 3/4-48

The upper column is two Series shafts welded up so we can use a standard steering wheel. The bearing end is machined to incorporate a standard sealed bearing with a spline for the Rover u-joint, and the lower column shaft between u-joints is fabricated.

Fabricated a bracket to mount a ZF reservoir above the box on the inside of the wing. Pump is a Bosch RR unit and the pulley is made of RR and D2 parts.

We still have some cleaning and detailing to do, but are waiting until we test run this afternoon to refit the wing.

Trevor, could you share the information on the fittings you used at the steering box? My P38 box came from the junkyard with no fittings... need to build lines soon

Thanks!

They are just banjo fittings, metric, same as you would find on a BMW or other German car. I think it is M18X1.5 and M16X1.5 thread.

These are the parts I ordered from the likes of Jegs and ANPlumbing.com:
2x 555-110021 90* -6
1x 555-110022 90* -8
1x 555-110910 -6 hose
1x 799-632103 -8 hose
1x 799-632203 -12 hose
1x 361-AT991955 -6 to 16mx1.5 adapter (for P38 pump p/n QVB101090)
1x 776-06-M14D banjo
1x 776-08-M16D banjo
2x 89142015 alloy washer
2x 89162215 alloy washer.

Hope this helps! We've had the Rover running and confirmed function in the shop with no hydraulic or clearance issues. Well, it's a rover so there are other unrelated issues such as no idle mixture adjustment on the carb. As soon as we resolve that and the dusting of snow that creates panic in Central Pennsylvania clears, heading out for a test drive.
