  2. as the title , GOT TO BE RELIABLE as I spend time and money preping the truck and entering events none of the "sorry but I know you are on your way to the event but my budgy is sick / wife wont let me come" types need apply am based in Watford in herts and have a half decent truck and 7 years experience. My brother and I have done the challenger series for a few years (we are the idiots with the coach !!). Looking to do the challenger or LRS series this year so south east to midlands based people ideal , Oh and if you want to help prep the truck / load the bus and come up in the bus up then all good Steve

    Chris That's a shame can't you change it during the drivers briefing as per usual !!!!!
  19. I have a 300 tdi challenge truck with hydro assist steering and am suffering from poor steering assist (both before and after the hydro assist kit) I have replaced the steering box and the pump (twice) but I still suffer from power steering failure. I run 38.5 inch boggers at about 6 psi on the front and the power steering packed up about 2 hours into a challenge and came back and hour later only to go again. My question is can I get a heavy duty pump or do you have any other ideas as how to cure this Thanks in Advance

    Heavy Duty power steering pump ??

    Thanks Boothy will give John a call

    Heavy Duty power steering pump ??

    Right spoken to First Four Offroad and what they call the ZF 74 flows about 6-7 litres per min compared to the standard of 4 l/min , doesn't fit a 300 tdi and now costs £325 + vat so that's a dead end

    Heavy Duty power steering pump ??

    Thanks Fridge been looking at old threads on here and found a link to 4x4 winches selling what they call a ZF 74 pump for £189 which if its as super duper as people say isn't too bad when a genuine regular pump is £100 ish

    Heavy Duty power steering pump ??

    Fridge I thought I saw a heavy duty one for sale on here a while back...any ideas am fed up with heavy or intermittent power steering so that was why I went for the hydro assist kit as the series I compete in wont (I think ) allow full hydro

    Heavy Duty power steering pump ??

    Hmm Sean it is possible but the pump doesn't seem to be pumping when you turn lock to lock
