Hi. I just installed a PSC double end ram kit for a TJ in my 00TJ. I went out this past weekend and overall the steering works well but I do have 2 issues with it. My problem is that I can not turn the wheels fast enough. Let say I'm in a race and I hit a giant whoop. The back kicks out sideways and when I go to correct I'm actually pushing against the pump. I had a close call in the rocks while crawling this weekend and the steering speed restricted me a bit. If I get in a bad situation there is now doubt this is going to screw me. How do I make it faster? I talked to someone at PSC today and he told me to drill out the high pressure pump fitting to 3/16". After doing so I re-bled the system. While up on jack stands I almost feel like it made no difference at all. His next suggestion was to go with a smaller pump pulley. I can also tell you that the pump whines a little over about 3500RPM. Am I on the right track? Thanks -Ian
I have a PSC hydro boost + steering assist full kit for V8 Chevy/Jeep CJ that's been working great for a long time. Just recently I swapped out the ram cylinder and now am having a hell of a time getting it to work again. I've bled it a hundred times, pump gets VERY hot and high pressure line to hydro boost is hot, but cold on the pressure line coming out of hydro boost to steering gear, return line from hydro boost to reservoir is warm. Is this normal? I checked all the hoses and no leaks or kinks. The suction hose from the reservoir to pump is short and relatively straight. I didn't change any of the configuration except a new 8" ram, I bent the old one. I swapped in a new pump and started over with the same results. I've gone through the bleed procedure so many times it's crazy, two weeks of this. Do I let it get hot and just keep it up until it starts to get all the lines hot? I'm afraid it might fry the pump, it's HOT
Can you provide shipping/tracking information? I've called your sales and shipping departments several times and left my name and number, no one has returned my calls. I'd just like to know when I can expect to receive my order. Order # 100002376. Thanks!
