I can't remember if I would have changed out the automatic steering column on my 67 F100 when I converted over to power steering 35 years ago. I used the parts from a 72 F250 w/ Ford box. The current steering wheel distance is just fine. Seems there was a length issue, like one was longer than the other.
My reason for asking is I need to change out the lower bearing and find different part numbers between 67 and 72. I am not sure which one I have. Does anyone know if there is a column length difference?
When I changed my 70 F100 over to power steering about 13 or 14 years ago, I had to change the steering column in order to mate properly with the gearbox. I actually used an automatic column. Mine was a three speed column shift, since converted to 4 speed floor shift.
Thanks guys, it is all coming back to me now - the taller box required the shorter shaft. I used the guts from the donor but kept my outer tube so I did not have to repaint it.
Been a great truck since 1969 when I bought it from original owner. it is still my daily driver
Bill, you are absolutely right. I was reading the LMC catalog and with your info I realized I was looking at the part # for the lower column bearing seal. Also with the part # you provided I found that I had a new bearing in my parts supply. Thank you. Your knowledge is invaluable.
