I've been asked how I build a steering column from scratch. Here are acouple of quick sketches.
Is it the coupler that keeps the shaft centered at the bottom of the tube?Youngster said:Sorry, I should have taken more time with this.
The steering shaft can come from any car you choose as long as it is a 3/4" shaft. The steering wheel adaptor can be from Grant or any other company. You just need to know what car the shaft came from when you buy the adaptor so you get the correct spline in the hub.
One other thing, the rubber bushing at the top of the tube dosen't need any lub. Oil or grease will harden the rubber and cause it to squeek.
Just a piece of steel tube from the hardware store. Here's a link to the Speedway tube.Youngster said:Fred...can't find the shaft you're talking about in Bill's catalog. What do you have in place now?
