Odometer not working consistently...

Yes, if you don't drive your Big Six regularly, they like to show their disapproval :lol:

Rebuilding a manual steering rack


I'll soon need to rebuild the rack on my car, since it's got a bit of play in it. What usually causes this? I've not had a rack in bits before, but have read the works manual and see that various components could wear...
