Re: Inner track-rod joint

Clifford, thats the problem, the shims should be rings not solid discs, its been repaired
at some time with the wrong type of shim they must have a hole for the spring to
fit through and then it loads the cup properly

rimmers sale shows a Pas pulley for peanuts ,

with limited space didnt seem a good option at the time

you will need the large TRE and steering arms to suit.
