I believe that there are two different tie rods for the Alfetta.
The earlier type had a 12mm thread where it attaches to the rack and the later type was 14mm.

I have the earlier type and I need to replace them but I've been told that they are no longer available and that I will need to replace the entire rack.

My rack is quite good and it seems a waste to just junk it.
So my question is, has anybody redrilled and retapped the earlier racks to 14mm?

Thanks mate,
Mine have a male thread on the tie rod knuckle and female on the rack so it must be a ZF. Are there two types of ZF rack?

I'm lead to believe they come in 12 and 14 mm. Mine are 12mm
