Rack Recommendations

Recommended Posts

My 13/60 is back on the road after a front suspension rebuild, driving it at the weekend i thought the steering felt heavy, i had driven my 2.5 Vitesse the day before and that felt lighter compared to the Herald. The Herald has trunnionless uprights now but that shouldn`t make it heavier to steer should it?.

The rack is the original from 1968,as is the shaft and joint and although I greased it and put new gaiters on, maybe it`s tired?.It definitely needs a shaft bush as the wheel moves around in the column a bit.

Looking for new ones, there are Herald, Vitesse, quick racks, recon or new etc. Any recommendations on which one would be best?, the car has a 13 inch Mountney wheel and 5.5J steel wheels with 175/70 tyres set at 30Psi.

just browsing RB  and there some odd ratios shown  they say lock to lock is 3.5 turns  well thats said for  herald and vitesse  when we know the 6 cyl rack is a lower

ratio than the 4 cyl 

6cyl racks have a groove added to the input shaft to identify the 6 tooth  vs the 7 tooth
