RACK & PINION CONVERSION
An Alternative Mounting

CLICK TO VIEW FULL SIZE
General view showing the TR4A rack fitted to a mounting bracket which is braced forward to the old steering box mounting and laterally to the rear bolt holding the bumper dumb-irons.
Note the alloy rack mountings (Moss Part No. TT3255) which are much superior to the rubber mountings
The mounting is in 3 parts - the two side brackets and the top plate. There is NO flexing in this mounting and it is very strong. No chassis drilling is required. The underside of the top plate is reinforced with an angle stiffener (see next pic)

A view from below showing the stiffener and how the rack mountings bolt the device together.
It would be best to get an engineer to carry out the welding. Engineers certification is your responsibility for registration purposes.
