Re: power steering coolers
Swap in the Eaton LSD in the rear diff and that problem goes away. Weren't you guys the team that had steering rack problems too?
It's pretty common for the factory "cooler" to be a loop of hard line bolted to a crossmember acting as a heat sink.
The crossmember is often in turbulent air so it may shed enough heat to be effective enough for the street.
I've run a small motorcycle tube/fin oil cooler, and also a small plate/fin cooler on the return line for years.
Both have kept the fluid looking like it was in good shape (still pretty red.) Also, the factory "loop" is still there.KeiCarMike wrote:
Our all-steel-body merkur isn't that light, it's actually rather front heavy.
I thought about de-powering our Merkur rack, but with a welded diff we need the p/s to just move around the pit.
