66 Impala Steering Column Installation
I am having difficulty installing my automatic on the floorsteering column. My car has been a part for over 30 years, but based on themanuals I have, I appear to have assembled it correctly. I have the dash upper steering cover attachedto the underside of the dash and it is flush to the dash. I then placed the steering column into theunderside brake/steering support bracket under the dash and tightened thebracket which supports the steering column, with the 2 nuts to the rods whichare connected to the upper fire wall.
This places the steering column outer casing out ofalignment with the upper dash steering cover about a 1/4"' to high. Thisalso makes placing the lower steering cover difficult to install. I looked at pictures of other 66 Impalasteering columns and the outer casing seems to align cylindrically. Am I missing some type of spacer between thesteering column and the under dash bracket?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
