  2. Steering Pillow Block Offset Plate

    Steering Pillow Block Offset Plate

    After moving the steering rack back using the Ackerman bushings the steering universal joints were binding so I had to relocate the lower pillow block slightly. This is the offset plate that I made from 3/16" steel plate.

    This photo shows the drill jig in use. It bolts into the stock MkI / MkII rack location and has a bushing to locate a 1/2" drill bit for drilling the X member.
  4. Ackerman Mod Drill Jig

    Ackerman Mod Drill Jig

    This is a simple jig I made to allow the holes for the Ackerman mod to be drilled from the engine side so you don't have to remove the radiator to drill from the other side.
