One gear with 7 teeth and the other with 10 teeth. They then said that second option with 10 teeth means the driver can turn the wheel less to get more steering lock and stressed the mechanical parts more.
My questions are :
(1) Does this seem correct ?
(2) I don't know much about rack and pinion steering. But would or could the 7 or 10 teeth pinion gears be the same diameter or must they be a different diameter ?
(3) Can you use different sized pinion gears with the same rack interchange-ably or does the whole thing have to be replaced (new pinion means new rack) to change between different steering set ups for the driver.
(4) Which gear actually stresses the mechanical parts in the steering system more ? 10 teeth or 7 teeth ?
