Steering Rack Brace
Just installed a steering Rack Brace on my viggen. For the most part it was a pretty straight forward install although I have a bit of a problem!
After snugging down the top of the two clamp bolts I began tightening the bottom nut that has the protruding frame screw... next thing you know... click!!! The damn thing broke off about halfway through tightening?!?!?!?!
I don't know what to do about the situation... is it fixable?
I don't remember exactly how things are there on that mount, but I think you're talking about a spot welded stud that's sticking out? I guess you'll have to either break it off the whole way, drill a hole, and use a through-bolt and nut; or weld something back on. Do you have a TIG welder? Or, do you have a picture of what you're talking about?
If you have a TIG welder it's a 10 minute job to weld something back on there, if it's the way I'm remembering, otherwise.. Where are you located?
edit: I can't find a line art picture, but it looks like WIS only calls for 18 ft-lb on those bolts
I am in Colorado...
I don't have a rig welder yet... and by the feel of it getting a bolt in there would be awfully difficult unless I entered through the cabin..?
I don't have any photos. I'll try and get some but I think you know exactly what I am talking about
Yeah, unfortunately I think you would have to come through from the inside, behind the glovebox and such.
