Re: Rebuilding/remanufacturing racks

Honestly forgot how tiny our racks are end to end. About 21.75" to the pivot points. Even na/NB miatas are 24". :lol: A Mustang II rack may be an option, but it would have to be shortened - and the rod ends figured out bin diving with calipers and tapes. They're also generally cheap and p...

Interesting. Never thought of going that route. Do you know about how long that would take to manufacture? My only issue is that I'm in somewhat of a rush to revamp my steering.

Rebuilding/remanufacturing racks

I bought an AW11 manual rack a while ago and was faced with something that looked like it sat outside for 10 years. It still functions, but there is rust and all the seals are done. Lots of play in it. Is it possible to send these out for remanufacturing? Would the cost be prohibitive? My depowered ...

Re: What's your other car?

I'll give it a shot. Could the exhaust manifold have anything to do with this? I'm still using the old metal gasket that was on it when I had to move the manifold a couple inches to get to the starter stuff.

Well, the starter still works and the dizzy doesn't need a rebuild, but I can't get it to hold an idle at all now. Just cranks with a little sputtering. Engine was at TDC with the crankshaft pulley gear at the 0 mark. The two camshaft gears were also aligned. Could see the dimple through the oil cap...

I had a broken plastic clip on the starter motor wire that kept popping off. I swapped in an entire new wire from battery to starter after much hassle.

Re: AE86 Good Drivers Car?

It sounds like an 86 is what you're looking for, but if your budget and expectations include a Caterham and Lotus, you may not be instantly satisfied if you get one. They can take a lot of work and money to bring back to form. It's possible to get a nice one straight off for $6-10k, but immaculately...
