    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to adjust the pilothouse of a Volvo 440 from 1990 (if
    it can be done).
    Or does anyone know a website with this kind of information.

    T.i.a.

    first of all get a better dictionary ;)

    adjusting the steering rack is sometimes possible, but usually the rack
    ends up very stiff in the extreme positions.
    Replace with a second hand one is usually best if it is really shot

    What's a pilothouse? The only time I've heard that term before is in
    reference to the cabin of a boat.

    He is Dutch, so from what I gather, it is a poor English transaltion
    that is:
    Pilot- to steer
    House- assembly or housing
    The Steering Housing, or rack and pinion to us'n's
