Looking at Rimmer Bros (not suggesting you purchase from here mind), the rack part number is QAB000220E (reconditioned/exchange):

Another recondition/exchange unit here:

Duncan,

My advice is don't buy any replacement at all. Remove your leaking rack and send it to Jay Gee Hydraulic Services in Wolverhampton. They will refurbish it and you'll have it back in about 48 hours. Better the devil you know.

Facelift cars have a better turning circle if your buying second hand.

Lock to lock, it is 3.2 turns for the earlier Rover 75 and 2.95 for the MG ZT.
Later, the MG ZT rack was standardised across the range, so face-lift Rover 75 were fitted with them.

The ratios are according to post number 3 here
