Stiff steering rack


I changed Mike2909's steering rack over the past 3 days (90% done on day 1, the rest spent dodging rain showers. (A big thanks to Smaky for the telephone support! ).

I've stripped the old one down (sort of). The problem seems to be with the seal at the n/s end of the rack, which has gone very (very) tight.


a) What causes this?

b) Can the seal be changed?

c) If 'yes' to 'b', how does the ball-joint come off the rack? I've tried twisting and clobbering it, but it's not budging...
