I discovered some play in my none PAS rack today, it seems to be in the NS tie rod where it joins the rack. Is this adjustable I notice in the drawing there is a shim?

It is spring loaded so expect some "play", could be that the spring is past its best

Hi Mr 5eon, I have just had 2 se6 & 6a 'manual' racks off for servicing, one rack had play in both sides and the shims where missing, the other rack had 3 shims in each side and had no play, i made some shims for the other rack and it is now fine, i'm not sure if it would be possible to do the job with the rack in situ,
These racks are Austin Princess LHD turned upside down, rack boots are same as RHD princess or early Saab 99.(none PAS )

I have tried for years to locate New Old dealer stock for LHD.
And even with My Trade contacts it`s nearly impossible.
I have now stopped doing racks because of the hassle.
Let QRG and GW fight it out for who has the most returns under warantee, not that it`s usually honoured.
Neither of them have the Engineering departments to do a rack, they will all buy them in.
