    WTB - VL Manual Steering Rack & 15x7 Chaser Rims

    Doing another Commodore v8 conversion...looking for some parts.

    vl manual steering rack & steering link

    15x7 commodore chaser rims

    vk or vl borgwarner wagon diff.


    Let me know what you got here or via pm...Sydney pickup preferred.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Good luck on the steering rack. Dear as poison.

    Best option unless you fluke one, is ebay which currently has them reco'd for $550 including intermediate shaft. They sell quick so jump one one if they're still there and you can afford/justify it - you'll pay $300+ for a manky old one at current prices.

    Here's what you get for $300-$500 at the moment, versus what you get for $550 (this one is mine). No brainer unless you find someone who doesn't know what it is and sells it to you for $50.

    VL manual rack price is probably driven up by the Valiant mob as well - itís the only manual option that fits the rack and pinion conversions.

    Elko charge $1100 odd!

    Yes they've all been used over the years in Holdens etc and now that homg uleh crowd is onto BT1s etc they all want manual racks so they're drying up with purchase prices driven by pharmaceuticals*

    Yeah it's all Ls conversions & drug dealers down this way wanting parts in a hurry that drove prices through the roof.

    Got vb-h early manual rack for other bombadore last year from Newcastle swapped for 3 row hv8 water pump pulley from AV8 peep.

    Try finding early torana rack...hot rodders bought them all up years ago lol
