Mike bought yet another, bigger press today, in order to remove the steering rack from inside the housing unit. In an earlier post, Mike was having trouble removing the rack with the smaller press, but now that problem has been solved with the larger press (evidently, size does matter in this case). So, that hurdle has been overcome and now he can continue working on converting it from power to non-power steering. This is done by removing the seals and cutting some notches into the steering rack to let air flow freely inside. He will then weld shut the holes in the housing unit that were used for the power steering fluid hoses, put the rack back inside, and viola…no more power steering.
