Far to old to be hooning around in a valver, you need to pass it onto a young slip of a sixty six year old like me :wink: :D

That's a shame Alan, hope you get it sorted. Wondered how you and that nice black valver were doing. :D
Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!

What is actually wrong with the rack. Sometimes a garage will say the whole rack needs replacing when it can in fact be repaired less expensively. Is the fail for mechanical or hydraulic probs. They don't often fail totally.
