Steering Issues

Recommended Posts

My Exmo suddenly developed a very 'notchy' feel through the steering column last year and I have now found out what it is.

 

Where the 'steering shaft' exits the pedal box into the engine bay it goes through a hold in the bulkhead approx 35mm diameter.

 

From what I can see (obviously not easy to see) the only way any sideways movement in the shaft was stopped was by a rubber grommet effectively reducing the size of the hole in the bulkhead to a snug (ish) fit around the shaft. The grommet has now disintegrated leaving the steering response, err, 'interesting'.

 

Does anyone have any pics or ideas on a decent bracket that can clamp round the column?

 

Thanks in anticipation!

Had a similar situation with the plastic holder thingy slipping out of the bulk head. I temporarily put a jubilee clip round the shaft tight up to the bulkhead until the go kart bearing turned up. The bearing is still sitting on the workbench 3 years later. :acute:
