The brief test ride of the Westy proved that it is a dangerous machine in current form. The steering had about 20 degrees of arc before anything happened at the wheels. Scary to say the least!! After checking the tie rods and linkage, it was obvious that a big chunk of the problem was the drag link. Both tie rod ends were easily movable by hand. Not good. The replacement had locknuts rather than castle nuts and instantly fixed the issue.
