How many people have fitted these?

I know Straight forward supplies sell a kit.

link to straight forwad supplies hudro assist

I was planning on fitting something similar to reduce the strain on my power steering box.

My box has gone to leak badly and Adrian had a shaft failure and a mate of mine has twisted his Shaft.

I know bathtub has got one fitted and I have seen how Brun has fitted his.

What bore diamiter do people sudgest?

I dont want to go too big as I dont want to go into the relm of wreking ball joints.

I had looked at 40mm bore 250mm travel double acting and the cheapest I have found is £65 plus vat/carrige

Should I be looking at smaller bore size?

Rob have a look in the pirate tech section- they have a really really good write up on hydro steer- although it doesn't address hyro assist per se, it makes pretty good reading anyway.

anyone haev any good links for hydro assist calcs to work out bore diamater and stuff?

5/8" ram with 8" travel is what Rock ram use & then just weld a stop at the desired travel.

I can turn the 42s with 1 hand whilst using the winch control with the other & so far the PS box has lasted the last 2 events .

In MTS we did 3 boxes in 2 days :(

Apart from the hydro assist, they also have a good selection of portal axles and disk conversion parts!

:P

I think you've lost an inch there :)

I'd expect 1 5/8" ram, as the Yanks reckon anywhere between 1.5 and 2"

Im talking about the shaft size not the actual body !!!!!

If not it works fine on mine anyway :P

We art using a standard 4 bolt box :hysterical: {i know but that will have to do at the moment} & yes we tapped it. B)
