Default what do you need to do to make a non power steering a power steering

i know you need a new rack and you need a pump and the pressure hose and return house and all that fun stuff what i really want to know is do engines come with the brackets for a power steering pump as a standard if not how would i connect it to the engine to apply the belt to the pulley? if its really possible of course?

Here is the Honda OEM part# for the P/S bracket
56997-P02-010 BRACKET, POWER STEERING PUMP $79.72
http://www.slhondaparts.com/browse.a...ViewParts=true

In addition to the power rack, pressure and return lines, the pump and belt #7, and the bracket #10 you will need #8, 9, 11 (two), 13, 27, 28

that's a significant cost. is that worth it esp when civics are so light? what is the reason for this conversion prodigyskate5? If you are looking for experience in messing around with cars, then I guess it's ok. that's a lot of money though, IMHO.

Perhaps it might be worthwhile trying to go to junk yard and pick up these parts so long as the car didn't have a front end collision.

It's going to cost well over $1000 to do this with all new parts. You really need to find a parts car and strip it. All the mounting points needed are already present in the manual car.

This is definitely the way to go. If this isn't possible, then purchase rebuilt components less expensive than new parts) from an auto parts store.
