Reply to "Seeking advice regarding how to "un-peen" the steering rack collar so it can be unscrewed."

...Narrow Chisel Or (Not Your Best) Screwdriver, to fit inside the Slot, You need to get the 'Pry' Underneath the Indent, and Hit it with a Ball-Peen Hammer. When Aligned and reassembling...just tap it back into place, using a DULL Punch. I know most will use Two 'Pipe-Wrenchs' to Un-Screw the Collar. OR, To Hold One End….Chuck it up in 3-Jaw Lathe Chuck (Slide ROD Into Spindle) and LOCK the Spindle from turning, And Try a 'Strap-Wrench'. They use these on 'Rifle Barrels' because they DO NOT Mar the finish. If that doesn't Grip, You'll need the Pipe-Wrench.

Good-Luck!
