In reply to # 26629 by CmdBentaxle Your second? Would this be for the belly tank or are you not so sure how the
first will last?
Yes Dave, I have faith in the rack and do not anticipate its failure.
Parts are being stock piled for build # 2............bought tires yesterday!smiling bouncing smiley
Moving forward each day on build #1 as well. Painted front axle, leaf springs and rear hubs yesterday.
Fake brake drums today.

PS
Build # 2 won't be started until build # 1 is totally completed.

The pinion I used is this.

I cut off the hub so it fit between the aluminum plates.

The gear rack is 3/4 x 3/4 and has a 14 1/2 degree pressure angle and a #12 Pitch. You just have to look around on ebay. There are several to be found. You need about six inches of rack to have enough travel.

To invert this and have it steer correctly you could add a second gear and the size would also dictate the amount of turn for complete travel. Great work Rick!
