Manual to power steering swap

Does anyone know of a thread or a write up that has some kind of insight into converting manual steering to Power. I have purchased everything I need except the belt. I was just looking for any heads up I can about this project. I bought a whole power steering system froma guy on ebay off of a 92 yj (resevoir, pump, hoses, steering box with attached pitman.) Is there a difference between I6 power steering and 2.5 Liter power steering?



I think my jeep stats are there but if not

1994 yj (s) 2.5 liter 5spd.

I don't know what an I6 power steering pump looks like. If it looks like this one, it won't work beacuse of your fuel injection will get in the way. I did the power steering conversion last year. It is well worth it no matter what it will cost you.

I did it on my 92 2.5. not sure but i think I used the power steering pump from a 4.0. ended up taking the pump off of a friends 4.0 to use as a template to make a new bracket. It can be done... just stay the course and will be turning with one finger soon....

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
