Ok people, you have seen what I am doing I have hit a cross roads.
Firstly I have a couple of steering racks at my disposal. 2 Triumph 2500TC non power steering and a ford escort rack. I think the Escort rack is front mounted and I know the Triumph rack is front mounted. I am after the rack pinion to me more centeral to the car. not all the way to one side. When doing this would you prefer a locating pin and have a mild steel rivet peened over cold (not very hard to make) or braze the parts of he rack together?
I am reluctant to braze or weld the rack damaging the heat treat around the rack teeth
also I can for see many a fuckups, so has anyone come accross something that is non power steering that would be easy to modd and plentfull in supply Triumph racks are a bit thing on the ground these days
