I assume that you have a grill in front?

What fluid are you using in the electric pumps?

Nothing fancy, ordinary PS fluid.

Did I read that the electric pump capable of variable assistance depending on speed?

Not the Vauxhall type.

It would have to be a system tied into the ECU and it would be far more complex.

I believe this can be achieved with the electric column but of course you would have to use some sort of dedicated ECU for this.

Yes but I have no idea why my photos are doing this.

I’d like to order the last of my bits today but could anyone tell me do these bushes fit all the Subaru Impreza classic racks?

Thanks, I think I've got all the info now after a few days of taking it all in!
I should be able to make the pressure hose myself too using adapters etc from the torque UK shop on eBay.

Dont need to go through the fuseboard Daz, just use two inline fuses an 80amp and a 10amp. You can get the 12v switched from where ever you want.
Could someone confirm where they picked up the 12 volt ignition from?
I was thinking coil but not sure on the loading, id rather not run any wires back to the cabin if possible.

I ran the trigger feed from the fuel pump circuit so the PS only comes to life with the engine running.

From memory, I ran the wire through the nearside inner wing although you can run it easily through the offside wing, into the footwell above the pedal box and across the dash top to wherever you pick the feed up from.

Thanks, where do you gain access to the inner wing area inside the car, as im sure i looked before and could not see a hole anywhere.

If you remove the clutch res hatch and stick your head in the o/s footwell you will see light bleeding through around the pedal box area

Drilled a small hole and sleeved the wire for protection iirc.

If using the offside wing, (easier) remove the clutch access hatch and fish the wire with a stiff wire or similar. It is easy then to fish across the top of the pedal box.

I used the coil supply for the ign signal, the pump just uses it to know the ign is on so very small current. I've had it like that for a few years without issue. Then took the engine running signal from the alternator charge indicator.
