Does it have a cooler on the power steering fluid?

I'm pretty certain all ELs had power steer coolers. Mine and Dan's do.

Probably a bit off topic here but I thought I would ask. My ute has no speed limiter (all utes up to AUIII had speed limiters @ 180km/h because of the extra suspension travel and the loads imposed on the driveshaft etc) and it also has no rev limiter. Drove along a long stretch of road and got it to 190 before chickening out, and once I had the auto in 1st and forgot, tacho went past 6000....thats with 8 cyls!! Is this normal or has some wank played with my car?



Pacies & single 2.5'. New manifold to come soon...
