Oh great, it's a gusher...

It appears that I've got an oil well spewing pre-refined power steering
fluid somewhere under my Range Rover. Actually, pretty close to the rhs
front wheel to be honest...

IOW it appears that the power steering has blown a seal or five at the
steering box end. I don't really have the time (or in this case, the
tools) to do the work myself so I would appreciate if someone could
give me some kind of indication what this repair is likely to cost me...

Price up a recon rack and factor in a couple of hours labour.

Top advice again Conor. Care to explain where you're going to fit a rack
to a 1990 Range Rover?

You really are incredibly clueless.

Just to add, just like the sad twat you are, I googled and found there
are steering racks for Range Rovers.

Same advice for a steering box.

Because unlike you I'm not a sad twat and I don't google for every
single little thing.

Balls.

not on any standard one. steering boxes. Unless, of course, the latest
kind have 'em. But that's not a classic one such as we're talking about.

So if you're right, and someone else is wrong, they're a clueless ****wit.

Yet, on the (regular) occasions where you're wrong, they're a sad twat.

Yup..giving as good as I get.

Alot of the time I'm not wrong as any sensible person can see but the
pedants who need spoonfeeding with every word say I am because I don't
quote word for word.

You, for example, have yet to show you can provide a fact without it
sounding like it came from the result of a search engine.

IIRC, there is a seal at the bottom of the steering box output shaft which
can leak quite badly. There is a repais kit available. But it does sound
form your 'gusher' description like you have maybe a loose or dodgy union on
the pipes into/out of the box itself. Worth a quick look I reckin and also a
post in alt.fan.landrover .

cheers,
JB
