    I would suggest u set it up using only one side of the rack (side with steering coloumn) that way you can move the rack around checking for bump steer. once you have the rack in the right place and no bump steer over the full suspension travel you can then sort out how much your rack needs shortening, I used a Vauxhall Chevette rack (has steel inner and outer so easy to shorten) on mine had to remove 90mm from the inner and 60mm from the outer. over the full supension travel I ended up with only 1.2mm of steering angle change. It is well worth doing as BUMP STEER is bloody horrible.

    Well we purchased a left hand drive rack for Taylor's Fordson,but changed back to right hand drive,but it may be to wide for your pop ? His van has been widened about 4 inches ?

    Welded on ? Frightening ? have a word with Wayne, he should be able to sort a narrow rack for you.

    MK 1 or 2 escorts normally work but this is left hand drive so makes it difficult.

    Can't you get your existing one rebuilt ? Or isn't aligned correctly ?

    Its for a tube chassis car with coilover struts and the steering rack is to go infront of the front wheels rather than behind. Ive heard fiat might do it ! If you can let me know the measurements as soon as you can that would be great !
