I have a 1972 (July) 240Z. Can anyone help with my steering rack disassembly. I have what I am going to call rack stops that are steel rings about 35mm OD on each end of the rack. They seem to have some type of rubber that can be seen on each side at the ID. Does anyone know if these are just pressed on and can be removed and then reused. I want to be able to finish disassembling my rack but the stops are causing a problem. I have tried twisting but they do not move. I do not want to destroy them. I believe this came from the factory as I am the second owner of this car and purchased it back in 1977.
