Re: PAS assistance level

The plug serves two purposes, it can be temporarily replaced with a grease nipple so you can grease the rack, also you can centralise the rack using similar to a 3/16" drill to locate a drilling in the rack when its in the central position, helpful when checking tracking etc. As for the seal, I woul...

Re: PAS assistance level

Another thing to check is that the top mount on the front suspension legs are able to turn freely. The easiest way to check is to disconnect the track rod end and see if the leg turns smoothly. I once had a PI that needed a lot of effort to turn the steering and it turned out to be the top mount bea...

Re: Power steering rack rebuild.

Anyone done this? I have a second hand rack & pump that want to fit to my 2500TC, have all of the associated bits as well, but would seem sensible to replace the seals on both the rack & pump before fitting.

BTW I think certain Bond Equipe models had rostyles, but probably used Vitesse/Herald wheels?

Unfortunately, I have to agree. The Lancashire group realised 4 or 5 weeks ago that Drive It Day, along with any classic car shows, and sadly the Register National were highly unlikely to happen this year :( . Oh well, here's hoping for better times soon.
Stay safe everyone!

Re: Crease in guard

I would agree that the crease to the wheel arch could/would be caused by light impact to the front corner of the bumper, not enough to permanently distort it(the bumper), but enough to 'flex' it and crease the wing because the bumper is bolted to the wing at the sides.

Re: Stag front brakes

As far as I remember they do bolt straight on, but you will need a minimum of 14" wheels to clear the calipers.
