Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

Refurbished Mk1 (and Mk2) steering rack (s)

Post by Andrew1967 »

I've a rebuilt Cam Gears (65 dated - yes they are dated :roll: :lol: ) Mk1 steering rack for sale.

This has been stripped, outer casing sand blasted, etch primed, premiered and painted. I've fitted a new nylon bush and pinion oil seal. Comes with Minispares steering rack gaiter and new track rod end half nuts.

Obviously the N/S steering arm had to be removed to strip the rack and this has been refitted and adjusted. O/S arm did not need adjusting so has been left alone.

Cable ties will be supplied for the gaiters although I am hoping to get some original clips re-plated if required.

Will require filling with the correct amount and type of oil.

£110 plus postage or can bring to Blyton or Beaulieu.

Depending on demand, I have other Mk1 racks (also Mk2 type) I can do.

SOLD .. will be able to supply more in the near future .. before Blyton etc.

Don't see why not Gary.

Price obviously depends on how much needs replacing.

Thanks Andrew. The rack I bought from MiniSpares isn’t great and I’d like to reinstate the original at some point int he future.

Where in the country are you? Could take a drive to drop it off

Yep, there no longer anything great about Great Yarmouth unless you have arrived more recently from Eastern Europe. I and my brothers were born in what could then be called Great Yarmouth our family was one of a very few in the area with foreign origins. Dad was a Polack from Chicago who found himself in the 8th Army Air Force stationed at Aldermaston during WW2 where he met my mum who was working on the land having been evacuated off the coast to Tadley - the rest is history

Always enjoyed my work days out to Great Yarmouth in the mid 70s early 80,s working on Charles Will Cranes & others in the area. "Locals were always great people to be with" .. One memorable day was while attending a new crane installation this 50t crane was on its first job ..lifting the loading ramp on a Commercial Ferry that ran from Holland into Yarmouth.
Got invited to a full Tour of that Ship .. Breakfast & then got a demo of how their navigation systems worked, also a invite to start up one of the Ships Engines.. then before returning home would load the car up with Fresh Fish from the Fish Merchant who also had a "interesting" Smoke House with yet another tour.. happy days in Great Yarmouth ..before the world changed & not for the better.
