Thats funny, I was recently giving thought to the same thing.. My ps has been problematic, so I was thinking about putting a manual steering rack on it

Trial and error always work too - you can just measure the span with a piece of clothes line or something. Most belts are marked in inches also. An understanding parts counter guy helps too...

I did away with everything except the water pump and the alternator and I think I ended up with a 32" belt. This car used to be power steering and A/C.

Also - no real need to swap the rack unless you really want to. I'm running with the power steering rack in place and have had no problems for a year now. Maybe offroading, rock crawling, or something, or maybe with larger than stock tires it would become an issue - but otherwise it is basically effortless to turn the wheel anyway once you're moving.

i did away with my ps. i can't say that i feel a difference powerwise, but at least i don't have to worry about the leaky rack anymore. marco

I didn't really notice a big power difference - but the engine revs a lot faster - which works out to a noticeable driveability change.
