Hi guys, I'm on the home straight with the early SE5 project but have discovered excess play in the steering rack. Does anyone know if replacement parts or a repair kit is available? Seems the specialists have exchange racks but that's an expensive option with me being in New Zealand. TIA.

Take a look at the overhaul procedure on the mini forum link below.
Not quite the same, but very similar and useful. There is adjustment by shimming, dependent on where there is wear.
Well worth stripping to investigate exactly which parts are worn.
