My son just spun a rod bearing in my 85 CJ-7 that I just let him start diving, so a friend is in the process if rebuilding my 400 for me.
My question has to do with my steering column
It is a tilt column and it would often work itself loose prolly due to m pulling my big butt up into the Jeep by grabbing onto it.
I had had it tightened a few times but the mechanic who last tightened it said hat there is something nside the column...maybe some sort o collar or something that has busted and the re-tightening thing will no longer work.
I need to find out if I an use a standrad GM column in a Jeep or not, as I thin I can get one fairly cheap. Or does it have to be a "JEEP" or AMC column?
Also, do I have to replace the entire column? Or can I get by with just the "upper half"....from the knuckle to the wheel itself??
Any guidance or advice will be greatly appreciated. This rebuild is going to strech the wallet and if I could grab a cheap GM volimn or part of a collumn at a bonetard it would dure help a lot.
