Steering is realy touchy need to slow it down on dodge dakota 1997 rack pinion was wondering how to adjust it or if can it acts like it is getting to much pressure to the rack


This could be a couple of things, most like none of them to do with the steering gear itself. If you are used to older types of steering systems that use connecting rods/idler arms/pitman arms, you will need to adjust to the faster response of a rack and pinion steering system. If the problem is that the vehicle seems to "jump" when you give the least bit of pressure to the steering wheel, it could be one of a few things. Tire pressure or belt separation can cause handing issues. Improper alignment, even if the vehicle seems to have no issues with left-or-right pull, can cause erratic steering performance and can amplify issues with hydroplaning in wet conditions. If you have had steering parts replaced, or changed and/or rotated tires recently, I would check those areas first. Lastly, I would ensure that you are using the correct power steering fluid in your rack. Many people use DEXRON ATF, but that is not the recommended fluid for the Dakota rack.

Could a hardtail be used for touring, would it be able to carry reanonably heavy loads?


There is no reason to doubt the physycal load-bearing capacity of a bike that isn't built stupid-light to begin with. Your wheels should be strong enough for the added weight. Get some good road-worthy tires but keep the size large enough for rim protection.

You won't like how it feels if you stand and pedal but it can be done. I've toured on full suspension. I find a mountain bike set up for the road frees my eyes for scenery instead of scanning the pavement for pebbles and cracks.

Get a Blackburn or comparable rear rack and slap some panniers and a rack-pack on it. I'd also consider adding bar-ends for variety in your hand positions as the miles pile up. I even add an aero bar for the long descents of mountainous areas.

If you can find a front pannier or rack system that will work with your fork you might opt for that instead or in addition to the rear rack. Your weight distribution should not all be on the rear. I find front panniers slow the steering down in a pleasant way, making rider input smoother and resisting sudden swerves that can make you loose front traction.

Added weight is not the drag on the actual riding experience that it is on paper. Once you're in motion you tend to keep it, so it pays to rider smarter and plan for red lights by timing your arrival for the green so you don't have to invest all that energy into accelerating again. Tandem riders catch onto this in time for the same reasons. Loaded downhills are a thrill.

Test ride the loaded rig before your trip. Do some long hills just so you know how to adjust your effort. Have fun.

I have a 2003 harley road glide with stereo. I have the rear speakers on the detachable tour pack. Also on the tour pack is a 10 or 12 pin connector to what appears to be an amp? All of the wiring is...


Front speaker output comes from the amp, which you removed with the tour pack. You will need to wire the speakers directly to the radio speaker out wires to function without the amp

Rack and pinion or steering kit


your vehicle has a transverse mounted engine and most newer vehicls have rack and pinion steering versus a shaft going to a gear box with a drag link and sway bar type steering system. most full size suvs have the gear box set up. some suvs like dodge durango have both a gear box and a rack and pinion. your vehicle has only the rack and pinion

How to change inner tie rod ends?


if fluid is flowing out the bellows, you need to replace the steering rack assembly. There is no fluid in the area of the inner tie rod. The seal is just before the tie rod.

Steering Gear
The power rack and pinion steering gear is serviced as a power steering short rack (3L547). The front wheel spindle tie rods (3280) and tie rod ends (3A130) are serviced individually. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The power rack and pinion steering gear incorporates quick connect fittings for the power steering pressure hose (3A719) and power steering return hose (3A713) that allow the lines to swivel. This is normal and does not indicate loose fittings.
  • If the fittings leak, check to make sure they are tightened to 14-20 Nm (10-14 lb-ft). Do not overtighten.
  • If the leak is not corrected, replace the fitting seals.

How do i change inner tie rod , do i need a special tool.


i think steering gear has to be removed to get rubber bellows off to access tie rod.

486d579.gif Section 11-02: Steering System, Power 1997 Continental Workshop Manual
DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY Tie Rod and Bellows SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B
Disassembly
  1. NOTE: Drill out mounting holes in holding fixture with a 9/16 inch drill to allow the power rack and pinion steering gear assembly mounting bolts to fit.

    Mount power rack and pinion steering gear assembly in Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B.
  1. Remove tie rod ends (3A130).
  1. sve~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Use care not to damage bellows. If bellows are damaged, this will allow contamination into the steering gear and cause leakage.
    Remove four clamps retaining bellows to steering gear housing (3548) and front wheel spindle tie rods (3280). Discard clamps if damaged or excessively corroded.
  1. NOTE: Steering gear does not use rivets or roll pins between the inner front wheel spindle tie rod and rack.

    Remove bellows along with power steering gear rack tube (3K762).
  1. Position power rack and pinion steering gear so that several steering gear teeth are exposed. Hold steering gear sector shaft (3575) with an adjustable wrench on end teeth only while loosening ball joint nuts.
Assembly
  1. Expose several steering gear teeth and hold steering gear with adjustable wrench.
  1. Tighten each front wheel spindle tie rod separately to 90-110 Nm (67-81 lb-ft).
  1. Thoroughly clean steering gear and steering gear housing bore of any foreign material. Any abrasive material is extremely harmful to high-pressure oil seals.
  1. Apply Steering Gear Grease C3AZ-19578-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESW-M1C87-A to groove in front wheel spindle tie rod where tie rod bellows clamp to front wheel spindle tie rod and uniformly to inner diameter of tie rod bellows before installation. This allows for toe-in adjustment without twisting tie rod bellows.
  1. Install tie rod bellows and power steering gear rack tube. Make sure power steering gear rack tube is positioned as shown.
