Mine is not power steering.  The set up I have is a TCI front end with a rack behind the crossmember, a Dodge Omni one I believe.
Working for a living gets in the way of finishing my car

Like Tom I'm using a Dodge Omni rack behind the front member  but mine is a power rack with a Delco pump. The front suspension is Kugel.

my 35 coupe has a kugel with Omni rack, NO power assist.  Not needed even with 60 series tires.

My 35 phaeton has a cricket rack about 5 turns lock to lock on JAG XKE ifs, way to slow.  Have another OMNI rack going to swap in place.

Unless you have a really heavy car the Omni rack is sufficient.

Searching for all parts to convert to power rack...wanting to get the smallest power steering pump,found one that you can order 1200 psi or 850 psi....had a question on required or acceptable pressure on the Omni power rack...would the 850 psi pump be compatible with the Omni rack...rather than using the pressure proportional valve????
