its possible to convert yours to power steering, ive been thinking about doing this mod for a while now.
the biggest problem with yours (like mine) is it hasn't got anywhere for the PAS pump to go, but it should be possible to use an electric pump from a peugoet 106 and a PAS rack from another corsa, but most of the pipes are going to have to be built from scratch. the electric pump should give you a fair bit of freedom of where you want to mount it and so long as its sensible shouldn't cause any problems from an MOT point of view.

get a rack,pump,pipes off a 1400 engine and swop the pulleys over as the chances are they will be ribbed belt rather then v belt

I can confirm that they most certainly will be ribbed belts since I had to dismantle the PAS from my C16SE when I got it. Had to change the bottom pulley & alternator then remove the central pulley and PAS pump itself (surplus to requirements). Finally I was able to swap belts.

Wouldn't have fancied putting a PAS setup onto my car to be honest, seems like way too much hard work :laugh:

Didn't mess about then! :laugh: Sounds like a job well done, took me 2 days to do my engine alone but it was my first time :thumbs_up:
