OK, I realize that your numbers are, as you say, hypothetical but to avoid confusion to some others please remember that what I measured was inch pounds (I had to torque the 3/4" bolts on my car lift to 130 foot lbs, with a longer arm torque wrench than a steering wheel and darn near pulled my arm out of its socket). But I see what you're getting at and a input torque limiting device may be easier than anyone thinks. In hydraulic steering the limiter is the pressure pop off valve. As I pointed out with this electric unit the amp draw goes up with the amount of work it has to do. I would think that putting in a predetermined circuit breaker would do precisely the same thing (limiting flow albeit electrical).
Now as far as making a torque wrench adapter for the steering wheel; You guys are KILLING me! I've had enough fabricating for one week and the only work I want to do is reduce the volume of my bottle of rye.

One more thing I might add that may quell your concerns about excess input torque. The driven gears in these worm gear electric power steering units are plastic. How much load do you think can be applied to them even if the electric motor had unlimited power?
