    Re: EPAS for the Stratos

    There was a discussion about this somewhere on the forum a coupla years ago. Dave Evans and Robin Tyler-Morris have it fitted to their cars and I believe it's an option on a LB kit now. Ask them or Craig, to save you reinventing the, er, wheel....um, sorry....

    Hello Ken,

    For the LB it has to be the Corsa B but I think for the Hawk you could get away with the Corsa C as well.
    Andy P might be the best man to ask though as I think he's already part way down the journey of fitting one to the Hawk chassis.
    Personally for me I found the simple dash mounted potentiometer the easiest way to control the Corsa column although David E has successfully used the speed sensitive version.

    Regards

    Hi Ken, I used a Corsa B on my Fiat 131 grp4 replica, you will also require a speed control box from ebay. Checkout Grp 4 fabrication they produce a complete kit for a Escort which can be modified for a Stratos.

    Only the Corsa B will fit............tried to install the Corsa C unit but it is too long.

    Re: EPAS for the Stratos

    I'm looking at this at the moment Ken. For my LB.
    But there are a lot of columns out there to choose from now.
    Nissan Juke is a short unit which might suit.
    I'm hoping to get hands on with a few alternatives in the next few days.

    Purchased my Power Steering Shaft and Joints from GRP4 Fabrications for the Corsa EPAS Installation.............Geraint already mentioned GRP4 Fabrications earlier in the thread.

    Re: EPAS for the Stratos

    If I use a Corsa b EPA’s unit how difficult would it be to fit my x1/9 stalks or would it be a better option to use a Fiat Seicento EPA’s unit
