    Steering shaft leak

    Hi
    The latest problem on my Williams 1 is the steering shaft has a leek.

    Is it the case that you have to change the whole rack to fix that?
    Does anyone know the best place to source a replacement?

    cheers
    Nick

    It looks like the racks have been discontinued, does anyone know where I can get hold of one or any ideas of what to do next?

    either have it rebuilt or get a pattern part, where abouts is it leaking?

    Thanks for the info.
    I wasn't working on it so not sure exactly where the leak is except at the steering shaft.
    already tried a leak fix fluid in it, but it didn't work. I hear that usually these things can't be fixed properly and need a new rack.

    One person has suggested that I should get a new one that is similar to the old one and change the tie rods to fit, is that a good idea?
