MKIV steering rack
« on: August 01, 2020, 10:09:12 »
Dear All,

I start to have significant noise on the right handside of my Left hand drive steering rack on my AC MKIV 1989 (AK1317).  Steering rack probably needs changing.
I  wonder if anyone could tell me what steering rack was mounted originally on MKIV in 1989 and where to find a new one for replacement.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
With my very best regards
Laurent
Many thanks
Best Regards
L

Hello Laurent,

I think the steering rack is from a MG B but with some modification on the imput shaft. Maybe some expert can confirm this ?

Best regards,

Emmanuel
