Default Applicable to what Alpines

RHFG, There is a link for the TIGER power steering posted by another Gent. I have it some where and will post as soon as I find it for you.

As for whether or not it will fit a RHD Alpine, I see not reason why to believe it would not fit as well as for the LHD Alpine.

That is an interesting question that I have not confronted. Perhaps I can give a better answer after this weekend. I will be attending the British Car Fayve in Norcross, Georgia Sept 9th. If there are none of the RHD Alpines available I will see some surely in Virginia at the UNITED XXXVI Sept 22-24th.

My design does not effect the steering of the Alpine in any way other than to provide a power assist. The steering box will remain in place. The lower column from the steering box upward through the firewall will remain. I recommend the outer column and inner shaft be cut smoothly and evenly at approximately 10" from the flange that fastens to the gear box, then the outer column "ONLY" be cut at 7 1/2" leaving the inner shaft at 10". From this point upper ward all inside/under dash connects to the motor assembly. The upper portion of the Alpine components are modified to fit the EPS motor, retaining all of the stock functions such as turn signal, horn, OD, Flasher etc.,....

Hope this helps. In the mean time I will verify if it is a fit to the RHD's.

P.S. I had a great experience back in 1963 during a visit to your Beautiful Country. I had the greatest of pleasures to spend several months in Christchurch, New Zealand.... Great people, Beautiful places, Best hunting and fishing a person could ask for

Dan,
Do you have issues with the steering self centering?
I converted mine using a 2007 Saturn VUE column and the ebay module.
It works great to adjust the assist though mine won't self center anymore

Do you know why it stopped selfcentering?

Do you have the Black plastic ECM box or the Metal one?

What position is the adjustable knob when it does not self center?

Perhaps we should ask Bruno?

Default EPS Link

This is new for my Electrical Power Steering (EPS).

While I need to put more pictures for a better display of the system, this is hopefully a good start,
