A previous thread on rack and pinion units had a TRW employee wondering what the part # is on the unit now being used as a replacement on Panteras.

Well, I had 2511 up yesterday (cleaning for Monterey) and can provide the following.

The unit is made by TRW Italia, has a cast aluminum housing and chrome tubes. Cast into the rack housing are two numbers - 227 and 37502. Stamped into a flat spot between these two numbers is the following - 20B90 528.

So, is this enough to i.d. the unit? And what about a regular retail price? Vendors want around $1200. Can we save a bunch buying on our own, or is the markup fair to keep our vendors in business?

You out there somewhere? Maybe you could help this guy? This was posted today on the De Tomaso forum.

Anything further on the TRW rack?



I live in Austria and I am owner of a Dino 308 GT4, year 1974 and would need
a new steering rack.

I saw that you spoke about the TRW Racks #21465 and #21461 and wanted to
know, if you can give me a hint where I could find these parts for small
money. (if possible in Europe)

I would be very happy if you could help me

Thanks in advance

Kindest regards from Austria
