- 62 Conversion Car, Pewter 98, 59 Project
I have a ’62 frame conversion car that has C4 suspension and steering. The steering rack is leaking around what appears to be a plug located in the center of the rack tube housing (see picture below). This plug appears to go completely through the housing and perhaps is peened or flattened on both ends. I have a service manual and it does not mention this plug. Can someone tell me what this plug (or pin or whatever it is) actually does? Anyone ever fixed a leaky one?
