HK 350 V8 Power Steering:

Description:

... have been slowly installing power steering into the HK prem,which has a 350 & long water pump.pretty much all the parts for the chev powered HK T G models are very different to those that are holden powered.i made the mistake first up & bought a set up for holden motor & there was no way in hell it would fit.lucky they are easy to sell,even made my money back,bought a chev set up & had a few $$ spare.</p>

i believe the only parts that are the same are the ram & pump,someone please correct me if i`m wrong

main pic is of the idler arm & it`s support bracket,vastly different to holden type

2nd & 3rd pic`s are of the pump that suits long water pump (return hose barb faces down)

4th & 5th pic`s are of the pump that suits short water pump (return hose barb faces up)

next pic is of power steering hose heat shield for chev engine with dual exhaust

then heat shield fitted to my car with dual exhaust & extractors (return hose yet to be fitted)

steering ram to control valve hoses

pic from passenger side,showing bottom of ram bracket,looking along draglink,ram to control valve hoses & retaining bracket

next pic from driver side showing control valve,pressure & return lines & chev sump

hope that`s enough to get you started on the H page T,will upload more as progress is made

cheers

Control valve for HK-T-G power steering. 11th pic- shows the valve housing fitted to the drag link,with the bolts only on a couple of threads so you have a small gap.at this point you want to have your 7/16" socket handy.i found using a small metal ruler best for the next step.

Control valve for HK-T-G power steering. 12th pic- is the valve spool & valve adjustment spring.the spring just drops into the valve housing over the valve shaft. As you push the housing down toward the drag link,use the ruler to line the large washer up with the valve housing.when you have it lined up the housing will push all the way down so you can get your bolts done up,get these as tight as you can.
