Do anyone have experience in changing the side of steering on an alan S4. What does it take of parts and effort?

You will need a pedal assembly, dashboard, rack, throttle cable, under dash trim and you may need to drill the holes for the steering column, brake master, clutch master,emergency brake cable. I think thats it.

Thank you Gary. What about the steering geometry ( house and rods)?
Are parts for this ready available, as a kit maybe?

Hi Per
Your name look danish, but we'll better continue in english.
I converted my S4, and the only parts I bought was a new dashboard, under dash trim and a second hand Triumph steering rack.
Every hole for fitting the master cylinders and steering was already there and the fitting point for the pedals too.
I only had to take the pedal assembly apart and put it together again and move the dashboard wiring to the new locations. The wires were long enough to turn them over.
Regards
Steffen
