Well i just got back from the junk yard and pulled a rack & pinion off for my car, mine seems like it wasnt working right and the boots where torn. i need to know if there is anything that i need to do while installing it like bleed the lines or anything or can i just poor in the power steering fluid and go. i dont seen anyway that i can bleed the lines, but i want to make sure before i get it all going. Also picked up a sway bar off a turbo i think its its a 19mm unsure though and also a rock guard that covers my oil pan.

Just start the engine after pouring in the PS fluid. After you get a half bottle in, turn the steering wheel to both stops a couple times. Repeat as necessary.

Does anyone have the dimensions on a late 70's (77 on) Brat Rack and pinion? I'm specifically interested in the overall rack length and the pivot points. Thanks!!
