Mark, In the thread I linked to, you said M12 & M14 - is this post a correction to the previous one? If so I'll edit it for posterity

Thank you, metric is good for me, fitting a metric electric steering pump, i will probably use banjos and Dowty seals rather than the flares.

Just check but looking at mine the side where the flared connections enter is not machined. Doesn't even look square to the nuts.

That`s correct Derek. :clap:
Burman who manufactured the racks probably did the drilling and tapping inside a Jig that castings slipped over.
Standard Engineering Practice before the advent of Computer Numerically Controlled machines ( CNC ) which know where to start operating/machining components, prior to CNC it was all hand & Eye done in a production environment.

Therefor a flat/square surface is not needed to do the drilling and tapping, therefor making production easier/cheaper/quicker/repeatable.

The standard pump uses a metric outlet.
You WILL need to "Spot face" the pipe inlet/exit tappings if using Dowty seals. :W

Right, thanks, will have a rethink on the rack end, and see what the hydraulic supplier I use have.
