First, not everyone is familiar with the steering gears on that model Huskee.  Can you shoot us a few pics and then we can maybe move from there?

Well everyone, i've done some digging around and found a rack and pinion off of an old sxs. Anyone have any ideas on retrofitting that into the huskee here?

I've used the rack from a yerf dog on a couple builds.

Like  @prancstaman mentioned in one of my threads:

prancstaman wrote:
Would be a good idea to move the rack a little closer to the axle so the arms are angled back while going straight. That way when at full turn you are pulling the spindle arm with a straight or angled back rod. If the rod is slightly forward while at full turn, the rod might lock up at full turn.

Little sample of what I mean.

Good info on doing one.

Finally got some pictures and some more work done. Waxed the paint and added a 12 volt cigerette light port to charge my phone or use a worklight. Nest i think will be the pully swap sice im needing new belt anyway.
