I am afraid this question has been posted before but my search of the net has not produced a usable result. The steering rack in my 1972 Deauville is leaking everywhere. If possible I would like to replace it with a functional equivalent from another car. Any ideas what has worked in the past? Can the original rack be rebuilt? I am in LA - been trying to contact Steve Wilkinson for advice with no luck so far. The car's restoration is almost complete - this is the last challenge before we can drive it again after ten years. Any help youl be appreciated!
I spoke briefly with Steve last Monday and he indicated he was going to be away from his business until Tuesday of next week.
Thanks, Larry - this is really helpful as I have been calling like a stalker for three days , will try again next week after Tuesday.
There are very few Deauvilles or Longchamps in the U.S so I have never worked on one, but I'm almost sure that is a ZF steering rack.
