    Part IV - End Stops.

    The standard setup does not include end-stops to prevent the wheels turning too far.
    I *think* that end-stoppers will be needed for the Nova, my solution was to create a 'tongue' which bolts to the Rack follower (12mm spacer needed) and 2x Adjustable Stoppers bolted to bracket.

    One of the end-stoppers needed a serious adjustment due to clashing with the bracket bolt (bottom of pic).

    Custom made parts:

    The opinions expressed in my posts may not be made in a sound mind and should be taken in the spirit intended, Jack Daniels is fine.
    Some people see things as they are and ask why? I dream things that never were and ask, why not?” JFK
