TR6 Steering Rack Mount Replacement

Earlier this year I got a great tip from the Triumphs mailing list. You will notice that when you turn the wheels to the right, the rack gets pushed to the left, and vice-versa (a side to side motion).
Take advantage of this motion by turning your wheels all the way to the right before undoing anything, and then replace the rubber mount that is not being pressured. Before tightening the U-bolts, turn the wheel to the oppisite lock in order to apply pressure to the newly installed mount. Tighten the U-bolts. Now do the same for the other side. It worked great!
Also, I have experience with the aluminum block mountings on a previous TR6. They work great, but much more of the road shock gets transmitted through the steering assembly to the steering wheel. In addition, it takes a little more fiddling to get the rack
