as part of a gas to diesel. auto to manual swap, the steering rack is being swapped out as the
shifter brackets are factory welds to the said steering rack. I am concerned that the heat will damage the seals in the rack  practice attempts on juck  yard racks have led to rounded 
fitting nuts, I finally used a vise grips to loosen the fitting nuts and would do that again as i believe heat will damage the racks seals.
thanks, ray
