Power Steering

Post by peterbot » Wed Apr 05, 2006 3:11 pm

Iv'e found the leak on the TZD. It is coming from the hydraulic ram on the power steering gear. It is weeping, unless you turn the steering to full lock when it sprays out. Now then anyone ever replaced the hydraulic ram? I assume i don't have to replace the whole steering as the ram seems to be held on by just two bolts.

Any advice much appreciated.

Just the two bolts and some pipes, check yellow pages there are places that can overhaul power steering rams.
