Been on with this today , all measured up and made just need to weld fixing brackets up and reasemble but ran out of gas so just spotted at the moment hopefully will have gas tommorow evening to finish off. Once welded up and bolted into place can see if bottom vauxhall U.J's need any alteration but think they be somewhere near

This is all origional vw on the top end so standard stalks, ignition switch, steering lock, steering wheel etc all work as factory fitment still need control module for vauxhall eps brain just not sure which to go for yet basic one £40

Bit of an update, got a few bits welded up at local machine shop as i didnt have enough time to get gas due to work commitments. The guy that i took it to fits these to E-Type Jags and couldnt believe how well it works on T25's as it took him hours of head scratching to get E-type set up correct.
Bought controller of ebay just opted for manual adjustment type for now which works fine and i couldnt believe how much more of a pleasure to drive it makes the Bus having never had one with power steering :D :D
will upload some pics of finished article soon
I would advise anyone with a T25 to fit one of these its almost like driving a different vehicle

i`m collecting the parts for a split one at the moment....not power tho..just a rack

bedford rascal rack t25 bezel box (not sure if thats actually requred...may be able to go straight from the column into the rack

the rascal rack then attaches onto the central steering arm on one end and the bezel box the other....but dont see why you couldnt use that electronical shizmo above in place of the column if you wanted it, as you have the t25 bezel box


you can use an astra rack if you wanna do a away with the central arm completely...but i`m toying with airbagged beam at some point so the rascal set up allows this, the astra rack would get in the way

:? will you end up with this = turn steering left and the bus will go right :?: if you use the type 25 relay box , is it not possible to connect the column strait to the sooty rack :?:
