Escort MK2 rack pivot extensions or ideas of another rack??

Hello all,

I am playing around with my design and looking at steering rack options.

One option I have is use a escort MK2 rack, one issue, I need to extend rack pivots. From approx 580 to about 660.

The thread on the rack itself is 20 thread per inch and approx 27/32. So finding a tap to make a bolt on extension may be difficult. Another option is to drill and tap. Could probably put a M12 or M14 up there ok.

So questions.

My thinking ok?

What have other people done?

Is there other rack options I am forgetting about? PS light weight and possible quick rack would be preferred.

Thanks

I've used the The Lathe man, perhaps a chat with him to see if he can think of anything?

Check Sierra rack, not sure of size but longer than escort.





Be Lucky Mike.

Only issue is getting a Sierra rack in AU. As well as the ability to get a 'quick' version.
Is there any shops that sell new units?
Pivot to pivot measurement would be great
