This corner of my shed site is to share with you what I am currently working on.

November 2017

Targa High Country

Just back from Targa High Country. The car performed well with the engine upgrades. An intermittent power steering problem meant we didn’t complete the last half day. Probably a collapsing hose caused cavitation resulting in complete loss of power assistance, usually just where most needed! Now working on a solution.

September 2017

Rally Car

The rally car upgrade is now complete and the new exhaust plus new cam and flowed head gave a 20% increase in power so definitely well worth the effort.

Rack & Pinion Power Steering Conversion


As mentioned some time ago, I have been intensively researching options for converting Morgans from steering box to power rack and pinion. With a factory manual rack and fittings costing well over $3000 I am keen to find an economical alternative with the same centre take off design as the factory setup.


I have now also received from the USA the power steering rack I plan to use on this project plus other Mogs if it works out well. This is from a mid ‘90s Front Wheel Drive GM car.


Yes, it is for a LHD but imagine if you flipped it and placed it in front of the axle (Morgan style) rather than behind the axle (GM style). Voila - you have a perfectly good RHD centre take off rack for your Morgan.


There will be a few mods needed to the fluid lines, radiator support etc. Once completed I do plan to write the whole process up so it can be replicated by Morgan Owners.
