    Power steering install jobby started

    Today I pulled the old rack out and compared it with this power steering rack.

    A little suprising the steering column spline that goes on the shaft is at a different angle.
    I hope that doesn't present a problem.

    Then I looked at the old rubber coupler. It seems to be riveted on not bolted. I assume I would have to drill these out to to put the new ones on?

    Now i have to stop and ask the obvious parts quality question. I could reuse this old one, or do i put in a new one?

    I have seen a few couplers fail with seemingly not much in way of small cracks so now change any with any fine cracks or hardness of rubber.

    The final shaft of steering shaft to rack is different between power and non assisted .
    Do you have the one to match?

    Yes this coupler does have small cracks in it, so I will replace it, also the one up at the steering box .
    I am pleased I have just seen the jk one does say Germany on it.

    So I had assumed there wasnt any difference between the power and non power steering connectors. I now need to determine what I still need.

    Is it just this connecting shaft?

    I hope the steering boxes are the same and in the same position? 20210502_101931.jpg

    This is the correct PS relay shaft.

    Wattie has a 2wd power steering version - which is what you need Paul.
