Steering rack splines

Is there a master spline on the steering rack pinion?
Can’t for the life of me get it back on, don’t wanna wack it to hard as I don’t want to damage the splines.

If I recall correctly there is no master spline. I made an alignment mark to get mine back as close as I could it. It was a battle, but between wrestling it and having a helper wiggle the steering wheel it went back in.

I made a Mark but that had disappeared when it came back from being refurbished.
But it’s nice to know there’s no master spline so I’ll wrestle with it some more tomorrow :+1:
