The issue is not with the rack, but the pipe which is about five inches above it. This pipe was clamped along the turret support, which has been removed because it was obviously in the way. Everything looks as though it is factory-original , so it begins to look as though this is another anomaly on my car, which we already know has a 6B pump.
It's a Reliant!
