    Steering rack

    Can anyone tell me what rack is used in the GD MK3 please, I have some play in the inner joints that needs sorting.
    Easy to fix or will it need a total replacement/recon?
    Cheers

    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    My GD was built with a steeringrack from Triumph (Dolemite I think it was)
    Play is easy to solve; works with spacers/shims

    Thanks Superseven, got me confused now! I have been doing some digging and found it may be a Ford Escort MK3 rack?
    Can anyone confirm or deny either Triumph or Ford?

    The Mk3 ran from about 1990 until, er now if you ask nicely. The racks have changed over the years, so “it depends” is the answer.

    Mine is Chassis 34 and has a flat mounting bracket (later design has a ramp that makes it much easier to adjust bump steer), it’s based on a Triumph but uses parts from different models, when mine was a bit sloppy I send it off to Kiley Clinton who sorted out everything and swapped some bits over to make it a “quick rack” (I went EPAS so didn’t need lots of gearing to reduce steering effort).

    If you can send me a PM, I can forward a picture of the steeringrack I had.
    Switched mine with a LHD version
