Steering column attachment

Recommended Posts

Finally putting my 63 back together. Somewhere in my parts cataloging I misplaced whatever holds the steering column to the car. There are four large holes on a bracket on the column. Is this held in place by two plates and then the nuts???? Pictures/ parts catalog reference? I will more than likely be fabricating new ones if I cannot find the originals.

Thanks

Hey Milt. There is a long bracket that runs the length of the dash right behind the dashes lower lip. There are 4 bolts on this braket you bolt the column to. I have a '63 I am planning on parting out and may be able to pull one from that car. I have some photo's of one out of the car and one installed. Send me a note via email at jimecamp@gmail.com and I will send you photo's

Thanks for the quick respomse. I can see that bracket and the bolts. I took the steering wheel column out over a year ago to paint and cannot remember (old guy) what goes on those four bolts. The holes on the column are huge, so there must have been some pretty big fender washers or maybe two plates, one on each side.

thanks

Oh, i get it.... that is easy. There are four large rectangular washers that are used to support the column with those large holes. The washers are just under 7/8" by 1" and 7/8 and about 3/16 thick. You could easily cut these from some 12 gauge steel, drill an 11/32 hole in the center and be good to go.
