Steering rack shims (re-shim)

PostPost by: type36lotus » Mon Jan 16, 2006 3:08 am

Ahh, ignorance is bliss. It was very blissful zipping around today
in the cool weather. All the time I did not a single time even
think about any of the below mentioned issues. I just drove and
smiled like the blissful fool I was. :-)

PS Bliss ruined by the reality of work on Monday :-(

Lads,

Can we add a few more things to the list of "things to be ignored"

For instance, toe-in/toe out, fuel pressure, carburettor float
level, cam timing, distributor timing, wheel bearing free play,

brake disc run-out, tyre pressures, brake pedal free travel,
headlamp alignment , spark plug gap, track rod end free play, door
sag, ride height, contacts gap, exhaust clearance etc etc.

Why do we have to make life so difficult ?

I agree with Roy. I ignored the rack shimming issue altogether
and haven't

had any perceived ill effects since I got my Elan back on the
road a year

ago. Skinny tires and the aforementioned compliance features
probably help.
