I would put that on the top deck with a couple of bungee cords.

Today we got the 1966 standard ratio steering gearbox rebuilt, lubricated and adjusted. We also disassembled, cleaned lubricated and reassembled the steering column mast lower bearing. The upper bearing we repack in situ. Also cleaned and painted the coupler and clamp we will be using to attach to the collapsible shaft. The upper steering shaft has been cleaned and rust removed from the lower spring location.

We will clean the 63 steering box tomorrow for its rebuild this weekend.

We will also setup another set of driveshafts for spares. One is ready with new universals that we installed today. Rust removal of the 2nd will occur soon. Just make do tasks until parts arrive.

I got the 63 gearbox all cleaned up yesterday. I have all the parts I need to rebuild it and to reinstall the column and the gearbox. It will be rebuilt soon. Temps are in the mid 90's so this is a good one for the a/c garage.

AL - If you are using the Flaming River upper bushing (which Clarks sells), How will you be retaining the bushing on the end of the upper shaft.

Seth:

Are you saying Clark's would sell us a 65-66 adapter shaft that will not properly mate to the 66 steering column? I hope that is not the case. I shall look at that today and address it with Clark's if it is an issue.
