Early Elite track rod ends for manual rack - what are they from?


Recommended Posts

Do we know where the early Elite got its track rod ends for the manual steering rack? I've read that the manual rack came from a Ford Granada/Capri, but the track rod ends are not the standard Ford parts (the idea of "not standard Ford parts" comes from this post)

I'm trying to find a set in the US, but Dave Bean is out of stock with no expected restock date, so I'm looking for alternatives.  Would rather not order from SJ due to time and cost of shipping to the US.

Thanks, Alec, but Triumph Herald parts are like hen's teeth in the US.

For the record, RD Enterprises has the the Lotus part, but they're $60 each (as opposed to $25  + shipping from SJ).  Being that they'll be here by this weekend, I just bit the bullet and ordered the expensive ones from RD.

I'd still be interested to find what the alternative is - just for reference.
