steering rack boots Only done about 300 miles. It seems like the grease has melted them.

I have fitted a new set from Andrew Eggleton who describes them as the better one etc. They do seem a tad stiffer & thicker


Where were these from? :shock:

I bought a gearbox steady wire from a supplier on eBay a few weeks ago, and it was too long. Although the wire was the correct length it hadn't been threaded down far enough on the thread that locks to the crossmember. Actual measurement from the face that contacts the gearbox anchor plate to the point at which the thread runs out should be 163mm (The new part was 180mm), some 5/8" too long

According to the ebayer (ame353) who sold it to me, the part came from Bull Motif.

It surely doesn't matter where the ebay seller got it from :? It is the seller YOU got it from who is responsible for it. Send it back to him and ask for a refund.

I agree with you. Fortunately I had a die that fitted and I was able to turn the thread down the extra 5/8" to make it fit, others may not be so fortunate, and I would hate folks to get the old part off and find the new one doesn't fit....
I was merely posting up a faulty part and where it came from.

I have bought many times from Andrew Eggleton (ame353) and I have always found him to be helpful and reliable. Unfortunately some parts aren't as good as they should be, but in my view you can't really hold the seller responsible (unless they new about it prior to selling it to you). A sign of a good seller is what they are prepared to do for you to rectify the problem.

Yes again I agree Mick. I did say to Andrew that I had reworked the part, and he informed Bull Motif, that's all that could be done. Had I asked for a refund I am sure there would have not been a problem.
