steering rack with no power steering pressure switch..

I got a 2nd hand rack and its got no place for the pressure switch! 99% sure its from an EA-ED and looks exactly the same.

The flat spot is there where it should be...

Anyone heard of this?

Its for a V8. The pressure switch is only used on idle on the sixes, if your engine is running well you don't need it.

Re: steering rack with no power steering pressure switch..

Hmm that clears things up I guess..

Still I'd have to see how it goes turning the wheel at idle in case it decides to stall, which I think it probably will. And it which case it will probably have to bypassed or something..
