In the "Scorpio Service Features" book (see attached) there were a couple of special Ford tools that were recommended for rack rebuilding.
Just wondering if perhaps in the case of failed rack rebuilds by other forum members that it may be caused by seal damage occurring as a result of not having these tools (or a home made substitute)?
It seems to me that T87P-3504-H Seal Protector would be particularly important as it prevents the rack gear teeth from chewing into the seals.
Many of these tools are available used on ebay for reasonable prices.
