Since your order parts, I'd suggest ordering at least 1 extra piece of each thing, simply to have extras on the trail.
limiting the ram is stupid easy. If you get lost, check out PSC motorsport Tech section for a how-to.
Originally I ran a stock RZ power steering pump. The motor has alot of empty space just behind it, so I extended the reservoir and added a baffle inside. For those who go this route, please note the upper ring is stainless. Try to stay below it.
I wasn't happy with the output of the stock pump so opted to get a PSC 3rz pump kit. It was not a direct bolt on, but wasn't horrible either.
The pump needs to sit flush against stock bracket. In order for this to happen, some grinding to the stock RZ bracket is needed. This picture below is alittle hard to tell what I did, but once you have the two in hand, its pretty self explanatory.
Next thing to do is drill out and tap the PSC pump. I tapped it for 10mmx1.50 threads. This is just a hair bigger then the stock holes and works perfectly.
The pulley is a huge PITA to press on. (yes I used a pulley installed) I left the pulley about 1/8" or so from sitting flush so the belt would align better when installed. Its not going anywhere as even getting it on this far was difficult.
The pump then mounts flush to the face of the RZ bracket.
Add a few washers on the back side to fill the gap, and its not being held on by 3 bolts.
With a simple 90* bracket, the reservoir fits barely lol
I ended up grabbing a 45* fitting for the reservoir to make the feed loop alittle smaller. The loop looks like
, but its all I can really do. These fittings are expensive FYI
The Hi-pressure line they supply is a DIY version. I think it should be ok, but may get a crimped version later down the road.
