Saginaw's inline introduced the recirculating ball nut-and-worm power rack piston. In this design, the ball nut and rack piston are separate pieces. During assembly, the ball nut (shown at right) is secured within the rack piston (left) by a tapered set screw. On the subsequent rotary valve design, the ball nut and rack piston is a single, machined piece.
