Steering Rack
« on: June 11, 2015, 22:46:43 »
Does anyone know the donor source for the Ace steering rack please? My ball joint failure has had a knock on effect of blowing the seals on my steering rack, and I'm looking to buy a seal kit. Neil Fisher believes that an AC supplier used to make up 'copy' Ford racks. However, mine has a Volvo logo with the number "34003798" in the casting. It's likely that AC varied the racks on the last few cars, of which mine is DE1102. Once again, any help is much appreciated!

From what I remember we fitted a rack from a VOLVO 740 ID No. 34003798, the only thing we had to alter was putting spacers on either rack end (behind the rubber gaiters)to stop it turning as far when on full lock.
   
   If this is a good part number most motor factors will do an exchange rack at a reasonable price.
