The power steering rack facilitates the movement of the wheels of the vehicle.
Its operation is very simple: a mechanical pump is connected to the crankshaft and a series of pipes goes from the pump itself up to the steering box.
The pump, moved by the crankshaft movement through the service belt, drives the oil along the pipes.
In the steering box there is a reservoir that, during the steering process, introduces oil into a plunger. The latter acts as a lever on the steering wheel.
The reservoir is driven by the globoid screw (commonly called “worm”) receiving the order from the steering column.
