    Hello AX.
    If this gets through and if you are willing to give me some advice on my power steering conversion (I just saw your extensive thread from some years ago), would you please drop me a short note? Thank you, Fred

    Hello AxRacer, I have been reading all of your info on MIG welding and was going to order some of the Esab Easy Grind but they no longer make it in 2 lb spools. Is there anything else that you recommend? I have some Lincoln L-56 0.025 ER70s-6. BTW. I am working on the original body for our 51' F-1.

    Hope you don't mind me bothering you but you seem to know a lot about alignment and front end issues. When the engine is running should there be play in the steering wheel. Nothing moves when moving the steering wheel apprx 1" both directions then power takes over and things move, after the inch. I've had friends move the steering wheel while I search for issues and nothing is moving but the shaft connected to the steering column and the steering wheel it's self. The sector is a rebuilt, I'm thinking it's bad. I tried to adjust the adjuster on the side of the sector but it's tight already. I jacked the wheels off the ground and tightened the screw until I couldn't move it any more. Play was still there and oddly enough there was no stiffness in the steering. I was moving the steering wheel lock to lock to make sure I didn't tighten the sector too much. This is driving me crazy!
    Thanks again,

    The fabrication work of your dash and console is very impressive, and inspiring.

    Got the tag off my rear end. It has a W with a 41 over an 11. Does this mean it is a Dana 41? Thanks and I'm sorry for being a pain all the time with the questions but I know you will be truthful with me. Randy

    Joel, I started with a 32" ididit column, but needed to shorten it to 30" for the wheel and adapter I'm using.. It depends on what steering wheel you use, dish depth, diameter, adapter thickness and how long your arms are. I'm using the leather covered Cragar 15" banjo wheel. I used the standard length Ididit hinged aluminum billet drop Mid Fifty sells (3 or 4"???) If the column is an aftermarket one, Ididit or Flaming river with a double D shaft, they are pretty easy to shorten. You will also need to buy or make a lower column floor mount. I bought the mid fifty Toyota floor plate cover, but had to weld up the brake pedal hole (I'm using hanging pedals) and modify the column slot to fit. I'd definitely get the wheel you plan on using and mount the seat at the desired height with the cushion thickness you will be using before deciding the exact column length, but unless you will be using a deep dish wheel, a 30" column (less wheel and adapter) will be pretty close to what you want.

    Hey AX. Got some questions for you - I know you run the toyota box with an aftermarket tilt column, which is what I'm going to do as well, but what length of column did you end up getting? I've seen where you posted about having to shorten the column 2 inches in the end, but I've never found where you've posted the specific length before and after. Judging by your posts we're roughly the same size - I'm 6' 270 lbs. Also, what size of drop are you using with your column?

    I know how everyone says to mock it up with a broomstick and pie plate, but I've found a really nice deal and I may be acting quick before I can take it all out and mock it up. It's a 32" chrome tilt and floor shift, and it comes with the 9 bolt steering wheel adapter making it 34.25" total length. Is this going to be way too long? I'll have my bench seat mounted all the way back against the back wall of the cab to maximize "gut clearance"
