You're welcome. I've considered how pictures would make things easier to understand. At this point I don't have the technology to make it happen, but I'm working on it.

i must say great work, im giving you a LOT of props for this one, and most likely all the things you do for this whole new deal... good job. i cant find the exact first car to have power steering, but i found the person who invented it, Francis W. Davis in the 1920s. (atleast thats what the site said)
