  • Steering rack rebuild

    Do we have someone in the 6-pack folks who does steering rack rebuilds?

    TRF did mine. I'm very happy with it.

            I’ve succesfully rebuilt two steering racks using Scott Best’s excellent Vitesse/Herald rack rebuild youtube:
            (same rack as TR6)

            https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c7vd5sP1nng

            One rack needed inner ball joints as these were a bit out of round. You can tell by rolling them on the bench. The second racks’s inner ball joints were fine.

            The only other parts were rattle can paint and quality rack bellows. I also bought a BF adjustable spanner to crack the inner ball joints loose. That and a common pipe wrench.

            Bought a core, rebuilt and installed it. Works great. Then, the core that came out of my car was rebuilt and sold. One paid for the other nearly.

              I'm currently rebuilding a rack from a salvaged TR250. Gaiters were in good shape except one slight tear on the non rack side. Rack was grease lubed not oil lubed. Looks like a moly based lube throughout and had a grease fitting. Inner balls are surprisingly clean and no indication of abnormal wear. They could support themselves before the teardown (no sagging). Rack shows friction wear at the rack tension point. Outboard bushing looks good, movement at the outboard end with rack centered was approx. .004 vertically and approx. .006 vertically so it appears to be in good shape. Grease was present thru the rack so it was being distributed adequately. I've disassembled and cleaned it out thoroughly and am ready to re-assemble. I'll use lube as I go thru the assembly process. Question is what is a recommended grease to use. I don't want to use 90 wt.

              Appreciate any experience you can provide.

              Thanks

                I'd use whatever you use for the U-joints.
