E-TYPE SERIES 1 & SERIES 2 UPPER STEERING COLUMN HOUSING

column5

Race quality custom made upper steering column housing developed in conjunction with our race winning E-types.

                                                      “Racing improves the breed”

 

This is a brand new housing that has been redesigned so that the unreliable original felt or modern nylon bushes are no longer required, this now features self lubricating phosphor bronze bushes which never require maintenance throughout their life.

The mounting brackets are gusseted for extra strength unlike the original which tend to break and need re-strengthening.

The kit includes a new horn contact kit and the housing is to be used with all of your original upper column components.

POWER STEERING CONVERSION KIT

Jaguar MK2 power steering while fine in its day, now has 40 years behind it and is disappointing compared with modern sports saloons. Parts to service and repair the ageing power steering are virtually impossible to locate and can still be unreliable after rebuilding.

M & C Wilkinson have used modern technology and improved components to develop a pressure sensitive power rack and pinion system to enhance our original already successful engine driven pump system. The advantages of using an electric powered pump unit are quicker and simpler installation and a much better feel to the steering, giving a more positive feedback. They offer the performance and reliability expected of modern cars today. This is due to the combined electronic and hydraulic sensing circuits built into the system, which supply just the right amount of hydraulic pressure needed by the steering rack to manoeuvre the vehicle under all conditions.

There are some other alterations required in order to fit this unit, in that the Dynamo and Voltage Regulator have to be removed and replaced by a high output Alternator, which is essential in the days of alarms, electronic ignition and high output sound systems. In order to do this the vehicle polarity has to be changed from Positive to Negative Earth. This will entail having to disconnect the electric clock as this is for Positive earth use only, and a check on the fuel pump to ascertain whether it has a later Positive Earth only unit fitted.

All our kits include all parts and fittings required along with detailed instructions of how exactly to fit the kit. Please contact us for any further information you may require as we can email the full fitting instructions
