–Three new displacements achieve surprising hp power savings
–Weighs 2.58lbs & accommodates both high-geared & low pressure racks
–Nine changeable flow fittings reward driver with best steering feel
Weighing a mere 2.58lbs and showing a performance of an entirely different order than any previous KRC pump, it is unquestionably the most important development in its field. The new power steering pump was designed specifically for use in the Cup series, but has been released to the short track world after a successful Sprint Cup Season. All intended, our focus was; lighten the product, make the pump more efficient, and figure out a way to consume less horsepower. We did just that as the new pump now weighs almost a ½ a pound lighter, consumes half the horsepower of any pump on the market, and is more efficient than our Pro Series 1, which by no means is a slouch after winning multiple classes in the 2014 Snowball Derby weekend including on John Hunter Nemechek`s Snowball car.
The Pro Series line was originally available with only a 9.6cc displacement, the Pro Series III range includes two additional smaller-volume pumps: 5.9cc and 7.2cc. Suffice to say the smaller the pump, the greater the horsepower saving.
Further, to accommodate race cars with quick high-geared steering racks or, alter-natively, steering racks that operate at lower pressures, the new pump offers three pressure relief options: 1,200psi, 1,450psi or 1,600psi. Allied to this the Pro Series III features nine changeable flow fittings to custom-tailor driver feel—for some, the quality that out-ranks all others.
In addition, three different shafts styles are announced. The most common facilitates the conventional pulley and retaining nut. Conveniently KRC uses traditional pulley offsets with standard 80mm bolt pattern on the case. More importantly the splined pulleys are an easy hand-fit as the pump-maker intelligently avoids the more out-dated press-on variety. The remaining two shaft styles adapt the pump for 3/8in hex drive and 17-spline drive.
A further measure of the pump’s potential is apparent in its ability to accept a wide variety of hoses, fittings as well as two styles of bolt-on reservoir. Commonly -10AN inlet fittings, including a 90-degree style that swivels 360 degrees and popular in sprint car preparation, are the styles preferred. However, -12AN hose and fittings are usually adopted on Monster trucks and similar. The principal advantage of having an integrated reservoir is weight-saving—it eliminates 3.5lbs of redundant hoses and fittings. Sensibly, outlet fittings are presented in upward or downward directions.
The rear cover, which is supplied either in flat form or as a PTO cover for accessory drive, features black hard-anodizing to increase pump life. Optionally, a hard-anodized finish is also available on the pump housing. Completely machined and assembled in Kennesaw, Georgia, all pumps are tested and supplied with a dyno sheet.
In conclusion, what makes this system so attractive is its almost infinite adaptability.
