Everyone likes it when the UPS guy stops in...
...with something fresh off the truck. Especially
<<--- this happy guy. Let's find out what this thingamajig is all about....
The Mechanic reports: "That is an electrically assisted power steering shaft. It connects directly to the steering to simulate hydraulic powersteering except we don't have to use a hydraulic power steering pump."
We'll use instead (yup, you guessed it) Electricity.
And yes, once again this is another treasure found on Ebay. The unit is brand new purchased from dealer stock where the dealer had gone out of business. They retail at $989.
But we got ours delivered for... (cue Hallelujah chorus here...) $27.18.
