True! It only feels bad at low speeds like while trying to manuever into parking spaces or whatnot.

I've talked to a few guys about drifting without p/s and they say it's not such a big deal. I've also talked to a few people with p/s (like myself) and they say it sucks to not have it in your car. I suppose it's one of those typical "bias - who has what" ordeals.

I took my p/s off for a while..... Drifting is really not a problem, just kind of sucks in parking lots. When you are drifting it is the same as if you had p/s, and better for canyon runs. In my opinion.

bringing back an old thread.

but... i recently took out my power steering. i cut cut the lines and left a little bit of fluid in there for lubrecation. the point where i cut the lines, i crimped them so they are sealed. yes, after a certain speed, it will free up. but not a whole lot that i can quickly turn. theres still a slight resistance. i looked at the fsm and there is a steering rack ratainer. i believe it is used to slow down the rack while turning if you have power steering. so what i did was i took out the plastic that put friction upon the rack. after that it is still the same.

steering frees up at around 10-15mph but it gets resistance if i turn the wheel about 100 degrees any way from straight.

i have tenzo R lowering springs and thats it i have done to the suspension.

the tire pressure is all at 38psi if that even matters.

sorry for resurrecting an old thread. thanks for the future responces. and sorry for the length. its a fast back btw.

No power steering in the 1960 morgan. It's fine. No power brakes or synchros either. Makes it all the more fun

the only thing i dont like doing is low speed U-turns, it does get harder to turn the wheel the more you turn it in one direction.

backin in is easy its just the turnin the wheel from all the way the right to the left at a dead stop to back in thats hard
