Dear Torana friends,

 

Got a damaged inner washer at the steering rack ends of my LH torana.

 

Im looking for a thread die to cut/repair the steering rack.

 

It seems like that this is a 25mm x 2.0 thread ??? When i measure it up.    I thought that it might be Imperial.

 

So i cant get any Die in this size 25x2 here in Germany.

 

Am i wrong with my measurements?

 

Does someone know how to get new washers ?

 

Like #20 at att. picture.
