    Iíve tried to mount the steering rack this afternoon, but after spend more than3 hours; itís not finished yetÖ
    Replace the little pin anyway; I thought the other one was too short.

    The other side isnít aligned to the holes

    However the driverís side looks good, so decided to remove the bolt

    And this is much better

    Unfortunately, now the driverís side doesnít want to get beck inside.

    Always great when you get to put new parts on....and always sucks when they dont line up right. I've learned to think of my car as an oversized model kit..and those always have parts that need tweaking to get to fit right...hehe.

    Success, but not so easy with the new poly!

    Double bolt to avoid any trouble in the future :mrgreen:

    Didn't see if there is any value of torque for this?

    Photo #6 that upper locking bolt/nut looks to close to the coolant hose. May be just the photo but you may want to clamp that hose back if you can.
