Thanks for that Richard. One would think that a bracket and a universal joint would be much cheaper than a custom bent tube with a teleflex style cable snuggly fitted inside wouldnt you.
Here is the Tourette steering, it has a Standard 10 steering box with some ungainly linkages. I had a chance to play around with both Jeans car and Wayne Lee's and although the set up looks a mess delivers fairly slop free movement.

How strange, adverts coming up on someones blog.  I had a look, even translated it into English via my computer, no adverts, no smut, just a straight forward interesting blog.
Ain't got nuffink now except memories.

I just dared myself to visit the blog again.  Just five silly "trapverts" this time, all saying 'You have one message".

On my previous visit, the blog itself occupied maybe 40% of the space, the other stuff 60%.

I was careful not to click ANYTHING ... and will see what now happens  ???

arn't you the lucky one - a Standard 10 steering box rocking - like rocking horse poo , not like the Bond 875 with a Standard 8 box - a left hand drive one !!! now they are like steam of rocking horse poo  :D
