Steering

i've been doing a bit of research and it might be designed to be like that it's called anti-ackermann and basically due to the outside wheel needing more slip angle on a higher speed corner due to being loaded up more, but it is a very complected subject and loads to go through if you did crank the ...

Interesting results spegru it looks like we have only 1 deg then - i've been looking more closely at the front end ive bought and the steering arms arn't actually that far same level as the trunnions i don't really know why they don't have much ackermann but i would think if reliant didn't think it ...

Now, I actually have some calibrated steering turntables . interesting :idea: - like spegru says try it on full lock and see what you get then at points going back to straight - i think you will find it will be progressive, it will be interesting to get a base/standard reading but may be only notic...

This quest for a cheaper, more readily available rack will rumble on for even more years than it already has.
has this been covered before? just thinking of any racks that might have been rejected so far

i will measure my SE5 and see what size that is, but it's still on the car

Flip front / removable front

wouldn't mind converting my SE5a to a flip front as access to the engine isn't one of it's best features. I've done a similar thing with my series 3 land rover as that was the same access wise :D

Though I lay the blame for this squarely with the government policy and cutbacks rather than officers themselves.
i lay the blame at our inept and weak judicial system - if we had harsher punishments then we wouldn't need as many police as there would be less criminals committing crime

it wouldn't be too expensive IF you could find the CORRECT taper reamer for the track rod end :doh: one way round this would be to use rose joints - if we knew the thread on the end of the rack (does anyone??) and could get a rose joint with the same thread we wouldn't have to machine in the taper ...

Isn't Ackerman angle determined by steering arms having a bend in them, acting in an over-centre manner that is then different left and right? yes correct, but its not so much the bend in the arms but the position of the hole - the arm could be straight but mounted further in and it would have the ...

It would certainly alter the Ackerman angle, which would aggravate scrubbing of front tyres on corners. yes thats true, i suppose it could be worked out but im not sure now accurate the ackerman needs to be, when you look at say transits with different wheelbases the front steering set up is always...
