Due to me using the whole front end of the Honda it still has the steering rack in it so i have to lock up the steering to prevent the rear wheels from steering. Your not allowed to weld to the original steering rack shaft so i've removed the steering rack and made up two solid plugs ( pictured right here) to fit into the end of some 3/4 piping
The original inner rackends off the Honda can now screw into the ends of these plugs which will end up being welded into either end of the 3/4 piping. This will end up being a steering rack replacement
The Solid bush slides 40mm neatly into the end of the piping where it will be welded in place and drilled then have a tension pin fitted.
Here shows half the steering rack replacement piece made up. Its some 3/4 tubing welded in place so i can also weld mounting brackets off it. Each end of the tubing has 3mm plate welded to it
Closer view of one end. One of the reasons for adding the tubing to the outside of the 3/4 piping is so that i can refit steering rack boots over the inner rack ends.
I now have both ends of the steering rack replacement TIG welded up and the mounting brackets welded to it so that it can all be mounted using the original steering rack mounting holes
The only thing missing here is that i will also be drilling a hole in either end to fit a roll pin just as a extra measure, other than that i can now refit the inner rack ends to the shaft and then reconnect my tierods
