It's been some time since this question came up. We only
got the CamGears rack as a replacement part in North
America and I have only seen one in any of the fourteen
SD1's I have owned. I was told ten years ago to save the
rack because it was the most easily rebuilt of the four
types we saw (Alford & Adler, AdWest, and Burman being
more common). Supposedly, Volvo used CamGear racks at
some point in time and the companies who rebuild those
Volvo racks should have the parts in stock. I would think
the rebuild kits from Rimmers would be correct also since
only the housings should be "right" or "left" handed. Of
the used racks I have in stock, all but two are Burman.
One is the CamGear and the other is an Alford & Adler for
which I have a rebuild kit.
