Default Power Steering Rack INSTALL

Unfortunately, my DIY photos for the "G1 REVISED Steering Rack Removal" procedures were all gone (damn kids; lost SD card) but pictures for the installation procedures were stored in a seperate SD card!

Here goes...

G1 Steering Rack installation; in relation to this!

Supplies: Multi-purpose grease (I used a moly fortified multi-purpose grease), 3 bottles of genuine Honda PS fluid and lots of disposable rags.

(A) In order to attain the maximum clearance on the gearbox side, you’d need to slide the tie-rod all the way to the right side.

(B) Maneuver the rack back into place over the shift control cable (auto) and exhaust header pipe.


(C) Install inner tie-rod (associated parts: large stopper washer, small lock washer and a notch or stake lock nut) on the gearbox side then slide the rack all the way to the left side, place a rag under the rack to protect it from being rough up, tighten the notch or stake nut.


(D) Slide the rack back into its original location (note: rack distance from the gearbox prior to inner tie-rod disassembly).


(E) Line up the steering joint to the pinion and slowly tighten the rack mounting bolts.


(F) Before tightening the steering joint bolt, make sure that all parts are properly seated.


(G) Re-install the steering joint base plate cover and secure it with the three flat white plastic screws then re-attach the bottom part of the steering joint cover (by pushing in the two tabs) onto the base plate cover and securing it with the clamps, push carpet back in place.


(H) Re-grease inner tie-rod ball joint, slide the boot over, tighten boot ban and carefully place the tube clamp then re-attach the tie-rod end.



(I) Reconnect all fluid lines; return hose, reservoir, speed sensor and PS pump.


(J) Reconnect air tube to the dust boots.

(K) Re-attach tie-rod end to the inner tie-rod (note the number of turns during disassembly) and secure it with the locking nut.

(L) Install tie-rod end to the steering knuckle and be sure to use new cotter pins (same procedure for passenger side tie-rod end)


(M) Pour one bottle of new PS fluid in the reservoir, start the engine and allow it to run for couple minutes then turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times to bled the air out, turn engine off, add another bottle of new PS fluid, start engine again, more bleeding and when done, check the fluid again, add if necessary

(N) Check system for leaks, if all is good, re-install the center beam and gearbox shield.

You’re done… but the next step is A MUST!!!

Schedule for wheel alignment as soon as you can.

Any comments, issues and concerns?!?
