I am putting my steering column back in my 62. It bolts up to the underside of the dash using a "U" shapped" mount. The trouble is, even when the bolts are fully tightened. it is still very loose. I must be missing some rubber mount spacer or something. There is at least an 1/8" of play in the mount. Does anyone have a photo of this mounting area or a factory drawing that shows how it goes together. My steering column is a Ididit. I think it is the same diameter as the factory column. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me.

If I remember correctly on my '63 there is a bracket that goes on top of the column as well as the strap that goes under.

That is right and you can just barely see it in the above pic.

Thanks guys!

I guess I have to clean up the garage and find that missing part. Thanks for posting the photo. Thats the problem with having my car apart for so long (4 1/2 years now) I can't remember where everything goes:eek::eek::D

Thanks Skullboy!

I have to stop working on the car this weekend and clean up the garage and go through all of my parts again. I keep running into these issues because everything has gotten scattered around. Thanks for posting the drawing.

I've got a dozen boxe's filled with parts....And I'm almost done with my car:eek::eek::eek:....Not counting endless ziploc baggies marked ,,Heck..I even have stuff stored in Coffee cans.....Oh..And do what I do.......mark whats inside the boxes...much easier to keep track of thing..After 4 years...It might take you another 2 years, just to find what your looking for.

yep the spacer that goes between, has a tit sticking off that goes into the groove on the column to keep it from turning.
