I don't know what the part no. Is, my local classic car garage got them probably from Moss as their round the corner from him. Recommended them and he fits them where he can. He has a knack of knowing what parts can be used on cars that they are not listed for but fit perfectly. The ones in the picture look the same but I couldn't confirm if they would fit. I will pop over to see him in the next few days and see if I can get the part no. off him or what car they are meant for. I know he has fitted parts for tr4 or 6 on mine that are identical but not listed as being so.
In addition to the steering rack, I have always regularly greased the top steering swivels and later the propeller-shaft universal-joints, once I discovered they had blanking plugs which could be replaced by grease nipples.
I wonder whether bottom steering swivels with greasing points are also available for the Triumph Toledo & Dolomite!?!
I've recently had ALL my car's steering components replaced and on the move, the steering is great. However, at parking speeds, the steering is hugely heavier than that of a modern, PAS-equipped car. This is why the original poster in this topic is thinking of having his car fitted with PAS.
Apart from driving a 2004 SEAT Leon Cupra 20V Turbo for 1 mile only (the most modern car I have driven), the only other car I have driven with power-assisted steering, was my father's 1986 Ford Sierra XR4x4 (the next most modern car I have ever driven).
The 23 feet long, Ford truck-based motorhome that I drove in California in September 1981, had horribly-weighted power-assisted steering, which enabled one to virtually turn the steering wheel with one hand when the vehicle was stationary.
It would have felt horribly unsafe on wet or icy roads!
