At the moment i have a NON Berman steering rack on my 1972 car. Could i do an exact swap with little amendments for a genuine Berman steering rack?

When you say 'non Burman' do you mean a Cam Gears rack or something completely different? The Cam Gears and Burman racks are completely interchangeable.

Just for your consideration, back in the day the Cam Gears racks were the ones that were preferred for competition use by many for some reason. Even today competition upgrade kits are based on the Cam Gears rack.
