In episode 40 of my '76 Mazda Cosmo restoration, the front suspension is finally finished. This time around I concentrate mainly on steering, completing the Miata rack installation I started in part 1. As I alluded to last episode, there was an easy fix to my rack dilemma; a right hand drive rack which when spun to left hand drive becomes a rear steer rack. With that hurdle out of the way I fabbed up the mounts to adapt it to the Cosmo subframe, figured out the inner tie rods, and then built the steering shaft and related machinery. Steering sorted, the next task was to mount the RX-7 struts in the Cosmo strut towers. The suspension is then completed with the reinstallation of the Cosmo stabilizer bar. This episode runs a little long but I wanted to get everything done, so pour a few drinks and enjoy.
