Power Steering

Evan recently took the pulley off the donor car's A/C compressor in order to adapt it to the commutator end shaft of the motor which happens to match well with the power steering pulley. The original grooved flat belt will be used when running the power steering off the motor.

Here is the power steering pulley welded onto a weld-on hub that fits the commutator end shaft of the motor.

The exact placement of the power steering pump is not yet determined since I need to give more thought to how things will be exactly placed in the front motor compartment. My main concern is that the power steering pump might interfere with the front battery box which will be insulated and contain four lead acid batteries.
