Hi again!

Samuel was so nice to send me a steering box (normal, not power steering), but it seems to be lost on the way from portugal to germany. (Now more than 2weeks on the run)

1. Has anyone a steering box to sell?

2. Where is the steering box from? Can I find it in an other car type?

Thanks for all Infos!

My Alter is nearly ready to start, but a good working steering box is the last thing missing.

To reduce the noise in my Alter 1 (4Speed) I bought kilos of noise-reduction-plates. I will tell you if it helps after testing...

Greetings to Portugal!
Sebastian

Try carpet for insonorization in the interior... not good for water and mud, but nice to reduce noise.

Hi!

At Samuel: Ok, I will wait longer! Thank you for reply. But In every way 2 steering boxes
are better than no steering box. What does "fifth fair sera" mean?

At filipeum: I will check the valves, when the more impotant things are done. But the Alter is
very LOUD!!! After I bought it, I drove 700km home. It was horrible loud. Because
there is only metal! :) The 4-Speed-Gear does the rest. So I will solve this with
noise-reduction-plates and carpet.

Do you know, why the engine was build so near to the inner space and far back in the engine-room?
Better weight balance?

Regards!
Sebastian

Hello, Sebastian

You're absolutly right!
The cause of the enormous noise you're listening,
comes from de metal. But I wouldn't consider it noise!
That must be the closest you can get to "HEAVY METAL"!!!
Be used to it, cause probably it won't get better!!!

I can get a new one from an UMM-Dealer in France.

But he makes me a "special-price" at nearly 500€...

That is too much for me at the moment.

So has anyone a steering box to sell at better conditions?

And in every way, this time it should be send with an insurance!

Regards!
Sebastian

Hi! Sebastian!!!
I don't know if you remember me. You've send me the image of your UMM documents so my friend Knuth could see and put a German plate on his UMM. He will contact you. Ask him about the steering box, he can help you.

Best Regards. Tozé.

Hi luis,
if i don´t get the original, i will try this with the mb-box.
I found a very "hard" mechanic. Maybe he can do it.
Servo would be fine, of course.

Regards!

If you are Rearly interested: I live in Lübeck. In Hamburg you will find a lot. This is 60km from my location and up to my time, i could have a look. With my 1984 MB 230CE I drove to Tarifa in 2 days. Hard but possible... So if you find one, you can do it on a weekend, and the baltic sea is a nice area, too!
Good if you take a 911 turbo, but better take a carrera 4. You wont lose any money with these cars. There have a very stabile value! If you invest time & service. About the TT its not the same, but a good car too.

Hi Sebastian i went to the sites u said and found some nice dials on the 911. Thing is that sould be a xristmas present 4 my wife but sadly my tenant from UK phone saing i got 2 put a new roof on me house over ther. The 911 will have 2 wait as my UMM is waiting 4 almost 2 years 4 rebuilding.
Thanx anyway.

I also think, a roof is more important. A 911 should be a second or third car. As I know now, about an UMM in Germany, it is the same. In a German Forum I met a guy, called Holger. He lives in Portugal and maybe he finds a steering box for me. Today I tested my UMM. After 4 weeks without use, the engine started suddently. So, most things are ok about my Alter, but still waiting for a good steering box.
Regards
Sebastian
