    Are steering rack stops required on a Marina based Roadster to stop the tyres contacting the bonnet sides?
    I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere but thought it worth asking whilst I am in the process of rebuilding my steering rack. Easier to do it now than later!

    Cheers, Robin

    Not something I have ever come accross, despite stripping several Mk1 and Mk2 racks and replacing the internal bush.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
