Default 1985.5 944 With Manual Steering?

I have had several PM's about the 944 Im selling. How do I tell if the manual steering is factory or converted? There is nothing under the hood to indicate it had PS that I can see. I know the steering wheel looks different but is a Porsche model and the steering is very tight with no slack but yet still easy to turn. I would really rather sell whole car. It seems wasteful not to save it even though there have been several wanting parts from it. Also, it is a ROW build car according to VIN, which also explains the non-English warning lights , etc. According to options, it is a factory manual steer, correct?


VIN : WPOZZZ94ZFN404652
Option Codes: C01 , 197, 327, 441, 454, 533, 573, 650, 651

Is the Power Steering Pump bracket still on the lower right of the engine? I converted on of my 944s to manual, that was the only part I left on the car.
Also in the PORSCHE PET is shows a manual rack for your 85.5 model year.
Option 657 is for Power steering

I think we figured it out on another thread. Its a German market car that was grey imported to US. Hence why some stuff is still ROW on it. Also it is indeed a factory manual steering setup. Now if I can just figure out what to do with this thing.
