STEERING COLUMN JOINTS, TR250, TR6
"Check These Joints Carefully Several Times Each Year"
If you re-bush your steering column with the kit
listed in the previous section, it will be well to
replace these at the same time. The rubber joint can
crack and get positively dangerous. The lower joint
wears out and develops excessive play over time.
Note that racers often replace the flexible rubber
joint with another metal universal joint, This will
transmit more road vibration into the steering
column, but that may be all right, depending on how
you use your car.

P.S. The rubber joint has to be flexed during installation. To do this, you can tighten a
large worm gear hose clamp around it to bring the bolt holes into alignment with the
ones in the steering column flanges.
STEERING RACKS, TR250, TR6
"Brand New Reproduction Racks Are Now Available, and TRF
Can Rebuild Original Racks"
Replica racks come from a reputable English source, but they are manufactured in
Argentina. Appearance is similar but not identical to original. Rubber boots are not
identical to Triumph originals, and reproductions do not come with outer tie-rod ends
—these should be purchased separately if required. TRF rebuilds original racks to a
high standard, but we prefer to rebuild customers' own units, as the supply of used
racks for rebuilding is getting low. Rebuilt racks include new bushes and good used
rack gears and pinion gears. Inner tie-rod ends are rebuilt with new components, and
original Triumph boots and outer tie-rod ends are included. Rack bodies are
sandblasted, and rebuilt racks are set up to original specifications and repainted in black
