Anyone got a spare steering rack clamp? p/n 157165

My sh1tty week is going from bad to worse... desperate not to damage the thread on the U bolt I just tried refitting the clamp and used a torque wrench to make sure I didn't over tighten the nuts on the U bolt. Still managed to strip the tread on the NS one.

I would consider a solid mount, but I can't find anyone with them in stock with the extended U bolts to suit the Dolly.

The only company I know of who is still supplying the solid rack mounts with the longer U bolts for Dolomites, is Jigsaw Racing.

Or Shaun Roche of this Forum will supply some excellent ones of his own design, which DON'T need the engine out to fit! Not cheap but brilliant!
