Just back from the post office. It's being sent by owls as their are no roads in Donegal.

I received your pinion today Harper. It was delivered by snails because you did not pay the owls the last time and your homing pigeons always lose their way.

Payment made MartyJ for parts only.

If enough folks around dubland have bought them perhaps I could collect and deliver when they come in.

Payment received with thanks.

There are no others around Dublin, just one in Cork, one in the Armagh and also one not too far from myself in Donegal.

UPDATE

I am 99% sure that there are two types of power steering pinion on our SW20 MR2.

I have taken measurements from two revision two pinions and one revision three pinions. I have no reason to believe that revision one is any different to revision two and revision three, four and five are the same as each other.

I must admit that I am relying on some internet sites for information and doing a cross reference with them.

I will be in contact with the manufacturer on Monday as he is not there on Fridays.

I am glad that I noticed this before production started as there would have been a few annoyed MR2 owners out there.

Thank you for your patience.

Marty.

I am in the middle of moving house and won't have a phone line probably for another two weeks. So I have very limited use of broadband (parents).

Baby is also due soon, so the pinion is on hold hopefully only for two weeks untill I am sorted at the new house.

Re: Quick steer pinion 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 133
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I had to move to a new house in short notice and then wait for a phone line to be installed. So my life has been hectic this past few weeks and now the baby is over due.

I have been in touch with the manufacturer about there being differences between pinions. In the past I asked about the MR2 power steering pinions and never got an answer on any forum. So this did set us back, but not by much.

I will be sending the other revision pinion for measurements and the soft sample to the manufacturer.

I have sent emails to people that have placed an order asking which revision MR2 they have as this is important that I know how many to produce for each revision. If anybody thinks they did not receive that email, then please let me know here as soon as possible.

Providing there are no more hiccups then I estimate that the pinions should be ready for October.

Thanks Basch32.

A copy of this message is on imoc.co.uk and mr2australia.com


Anybody in the group buy please read it carefully and give your answer on this forum.

I need to find out which revision MR2 everybody in the group buy has. If you are not sure of the revision, the year of the car will do. Please post your answer here. I will make a list on the forum of all the customers and the revisions they have.

There is a overlap regarding revisions for 1993. Revision 2 stopped around the month of September. I'm afraid you will need to find out for yourself if you have a 1993 MR2 and are not sure which revision. The car could have been modified by a previous owner, so don't assume just by something like the type of rear lights that are on the MR2.

For those who have bought a spare power steering rack for this project, you will need to know which revision it came from. If you do not know then you will need to take measurements of the pinion. Please send me a pm for more info.

If you do happen to get it wrong, then all is not lost. It will mean that you will have to purchase new bearings which are different in size. This means that if you change the bearings you could use a revision 2 in a revision 4, but it is more expense.

If I have not received an answer from any customer by the start of October then I will send them a pinion for revision 1 & 2, as I am sure most of us we would agree that we have waited long enough.

Thanks to the people who have replied to the email I sent a while back.
Can I ask all of you who are in the group buy to reply on this forum as to which pinion you require. This is so there is no misunderstanding on both sides.

For revision 1 and 2 = 1989 - 1993 = pinion A.

For revision 3,4 and 5 = 1993 - 1999 = pinion B

Thank you.

When I get confirmation about production I will send emails and a request here for customers who want assembled pinions to remove them from their MR2 and to be sent to myself.

Harper I know I have your pinion already.

No news I'm afraid basch32.

As mentioned on the IMOC site, I feel that this group buy has gone on for far too long. If the manufacturer does not get his finger out, then I may regrettably cancel the order and refund everybody.
