Electric Power Steering Conversions, XK120-150
If you find your XK's steering too heavy at slow speeds, we have a solution: an EZ Power Steering conversion that's hidden under the dashboard. The standard steering box/rack remains unchanged, as does the steering ratio and under-bonnet appearance. Steering assist is fully adjustable and is sensitive to speed and load. Because the electric power steering system is speed sensitive, it provides assistance at low speeds but retains your XK's steering feel at higher speeds. And, the amount of assistance can be adjusted to suit the driver's preference or to compensate for wider tires or a smaller steering wheel. With classic hydraulic systems, the "feel" is not adjustable and often too light at high speeds. And should the electric system ever fail (highly unlikely, we should add) the car would steer exactly as it did prior to the conversion, unlike a hydraulic system where the steering could be dangerously heavy. Electric steering offers several advantages over hydraulic. The electric motor only uses power when steering assist is required; conversely, a hydraulic pump runs continuously and usually robs your engine of about four horsepower, even when driving straight ahead. Note: Installation in an XK120 is more complex than other models, it requires taking a section out of the steering column tube and shaft. Welding is required and some material must be removed under the dash. The XK140 and XK150 upgrade is much simpler than a 120 but under-dash sheet metal must still be removed for clearance.
