manual steering rack wanted

Recommended Posts

I have been driving my S2 Elite around and I dont like the power steering fitted to it, does somebody have a manual steering rack with track rod ends, mounting brackets and steering column extension so that I can convert to manual steering?HA.gif

I have a manual steering rack if you want it. Nothing else though.

Thank you Paul, i am happy to pay postage.

I use Hermes for parcles as they are very reasonable for larger items.

I also have a relative in Brookwood, Surrey, if you go that way?

Still after a manual steering rack or any parts to convert

Rack, extension joint, clamps, hub steering arms (they are different)

Or swap for my working power steering?

Hi. How much different are the hub steering arms?. I am thinking of taking the power steering off my Elite S1.

I have been told that the tapers for the ball joints are different due to different make of steering racks.

Ford for power steering and I think BL for non power steering.

Paul,

I assume by 'ball joints' you refer to part no 2 on your attached drawing?

If so, then are these swappable between BL and Ford parts - ie is the threaded rod the same. This would minimise the impact with linkages to other bits on the car?

If not then never mind, just thinking out loud

Cheers

Ant

Yes, probably clearer if i had said track rod ball joints :)

I am not sure about swapping them over, I was told by Lotus bits that they are different and I should think they know their stuff.

Yes, I have emailed him to see if he has the other parts as well.
