Europa Steering And More

Our 1970 Lotus Europa has been in the hands of classic car technician Jonn. He drilled and fitted a new washer jet.

Jonn then drilled out the panel in the offside front arch and routed the new washer pipe through into the car. He then connected it to the push switch on the dash and then from the switch to the washer jet.

The steering rack gaiters were stripped and removed and the ball joint rubbers were secured. Jonn fitted new rack gaiters and secured them before centralising the steering rack and refitting the track rod ends evenly.

After refitting the wheels and torquing up, Jonn carried out tracking checks and adjusted as needed. Finally, the steering was set to 0 degrees 20 minutes toe in.
