Re: [DML] Photos: DeLorean Lower Steering Geometry



ii am on my blackberry currently but it's easy to see in the parts book. Check out the steering rack page and look at the square bracket on the pass side (the other is domed). Beneath this should be a flat plate with two "tongues" which retain the right hand flange and prevent the rack moving left/right. It's perfectly possible to install the rack without this part

Martin, which part is that and do you have a part number? It may be one of the many things missing from my car and/or causing one of thr many rattles the car has.

Thanks!

Hate to disappoint you, but the column I am going to fab up next week likely will work perfectly because it will be identical to a Toby columns, sourced from the exact same manufacturer -- just with the added benefit of a vibration reducing U joint at one end.
