We are familiar with modified and hi-performance cars. We build, tune and repair cars also for racing.
Technical updates are common in muscle cars to make them even more powerful. We also update classic cars with modern components to make them more safe and comfortable while retaining the spirit of the original. Dream cars are made by combining the best from the past and present.
Updating a classic car with an electric power steering increases the comfort and ease of use.
Enjoy driving your classic car, but do you (or your partner) find the steering too heavy?
Would you like to cure this without changing the steering characteristics of the car?
We can now offer you a solution: an EZ Electric Power Steering system that is completely hidden underneath the dashboard.
The existing steering rack or box remains unchanged and thus retains the standard steering ratio and setup. The amount of assistance is fully adjustable and sensitive to speed and load. The car can always be converted back to its original steering column. Under the bonnet there are no changes, everything remains as original. The advantages of an electrical system opposed to a hydraulic system are numerous. The electric motor only uses power when steering assistance is necessary whilst a hydraulic pump is continously operating when the engine is running. A hydraulic setup generally uses around 4 bhp and therefore consumes extra fuel, even when driving straight ahead.
Because the electric power steering system is truly speed sensitive, it will steer light at low speeds and not become lighter at high speed. The amount of assistance can be selected by turning a potentiometer, so that the driver can select the desired feel (i.e. more assistance with wider tires and/or a smaller sports steering wheel'. With a classic hydraulic system there is usually little feel and no possibility to adjust this at all.
In the unlikely event that the electric power steering system has a defect, the car would steer exactly like it did prior to power steering conversion. If a car fitted with a hydraulic system would have a fault the car would steer extremely heavy.
The EZ Electric Power Steering is completely silent. It can not leak and is completely maintenance-free. When will you turn around with an EZ Power Steering conversion?
For over thirty years, the Ignitor has proven itself in applications ranging from race cars to tractors. The Ignitor replaces breaker point and troublesome factory electronic ignitions with a dependable, self contained and maintenance free electronic ignition system. The Ignitor has been called the "stealth" ignition because of its quick installation and nearly undetectable presence under your distributor cap.
Besides Ignitor kits we have Flame Thrower coils and other ignition components in stock.
