OK

This is turning into a bit of a survey, but if someone is able to supply my requirements are:-

500mm long,

19mm internal hole.

However thick it should be.

Cheers Ginge

PS. Mocked it all up today just in case someone comes good with the part and found that my steering lock is broken.

So if anyone has a 91/92 Sierra steering lock lying around I will pay (no key required)

Cheers again

My original shaft is 19mm so I was thinking 19mm internal 23mm external. That sort of thing anyway.

Ginge......... if you mean the steering extension shaft then be careful of how large a diameter you go to, as the steering shaft gets quite close to part " U2", My own extension shaft is stepped.....20mm o/d at the rack end going upto 25mm o/d where it meets the CP16 .

my extension is thick walled stuff by the way.

cheers

Andy I think I might need something a little bespoke.

My original shaft that I have cut in half is 19mm diameter, so either end of the new extension would need to that big internally with enough wall thickness say 4mm.

Then for most of the length it could be turned down to 19mm outside diameter to match the original.

Cheers Ginge.

PS I am only up early as I am of to Weymouth at some point today until Wednesday. I will be taking my dongle hope I get signal.

Ginge......

If you can supply some dimensions....length/diameter/couplings needed etc with a drawing then i,m sure Saturn could make something for you , also we,d need to take into account the prob that Ash encountered where as his upper coupling was deemed to be too close to the CP16 bulkhead.
We,d be happy to help out if we can for you.

cheers

I wonder if putting the bulkhead on the inside would be an easy fix, would give a little extra clerance. The joint is very close to the bulkhead on the sierra so I am a bit unsure why it's a problem.

In light of Ash's recent IVA fail on the steering column, i'll be needing to review my own

Now just thinking a little outside the box .... How's about turning some bosses to join the extension tube/bar, say 60-80mm long !!??

This would allow the use of 15mm soild bar or perhaps 19mm OD thick wall tube.
Once welded, they could be drilled & fitted with a roll pin as a fail safe ( Way OTT, I know )

I know on my own build, a thinner extension shaft would give me a tad more clearance of the offending chassis rail

Like I say .... Just thinking aloud
