Cherokee steering column questions
I was at PandP today just to see what they had on the lot and I ended up finding a few items. I got a steering gear box from a durango, and a steering column out of an 80's something cherokee. I have a few questions on the column install.
I didn't take the intermediate shaft from the cherokee which was stupid, but I thought I had read it was too short and wouldn't work anyway. Is that the case, or should I go back and get one? If it doesn't work, what shaft should I look for?
On the install of this thing, does the flange on the end of the column actually bolt to the two bolts on the firewall of the YJ tub? The holes on the flange and the bolts on the fw are almost perfectly placed, but when I install it like that with the flange flush with the fw, the angle of the column is over towards the pass. side instead of straight on with the drivers seat.
Also couldn't believe it, but for the first time ever I found a YJ on the lot. It had been picked apart but still had the vapor can which I grabbed, and a family bar which I already have one. I didn't have the right sockets or a way to get it home or I would have grabbed it. For anyone close, its at the Winner Rd. Pick and Pull in Kansas City, Mo.
