power steering info.

This is a MEGA weird question, but i am after the pressure of which the EA power steering system runs at.

There maybe an engine conversion on the cards, and i will be using the power steering pump from the other motor, so i wanted to find out what the pressure the EA pump ran at to see if the other motor's pump was similar, or if i will have to get a restrictor or something to conteract it.

thanks :)

Pressure should be between 6200-6890kPa at idle for the EA PS pump. Thats the only figures I could dig up.

what motor is it? if its another 4.0/3.9 or even a 5.0 from a commodore/kingswood the pumps are all the same, you can just remove the bypass valve and swap them over - its the big nut that the high pressure power steer hose screws into - just undo it and pull out the metal 'piston' and the spring, and put them in the new pump in the same order :)

with a new o-ring of course :)
