Paddy_SP Posted January 15, 2008 Share Posted January 15, 2008 As part of the ground-up build of my 110, I am replacing anything that looks the slightest bit suspect... On examining the steering box tie bar (at least that's what the manual calls it), I noticed that the bolt-like projection has horrific corrosion near its base. This is the offending item: http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i207/Pad...orging_0003.jpg I cannot make myself refit such an obviously dodgy component, but it looks as though a new one would be a lot of money. The main body is a hefty forging, but the part that is suspect looks as though it might be screwed in. I cannot imagine that a design engineer would give himself all the grief of trying to make this in one piece. If I'm right, and can remove it, I'm hoping I should simply be able to fit a new high-tensile part in its place... Before I go attacking it with a torch, etc., can anyone here tell me whether it is a one-piece or a two-piece component? Any help would be much appreciated!
