So basically try to orient the flats I'm putting on the shaft with everything in the straight position and have the alignment guy tweek it in.

I bring all my old cars to this place in town that has been there as long as I can remember as a kid in the 60's, still does everything the old fashioned way and know their stuff well!!!

One other question...Is there a specific length to cut the steering shaft or should I determine that once I put the new box and ragjoint in, then measure back with the steering wheel and shaft in place?


Thanx so much for the input Jalapeno! I hope to get started on it this week sometime!

The column is an automatic but the car is now a 4 speed.

Since you are going to run a four speed, you can fabricate your own column, using this $20 kit form CCI:http://www.classicchevy.com/chevy-st...1955-1957.html

See the product installation instructions here:http://www.classicchevy.com/assets/p...evy/53-401.pdf

Instructions for cutting column and shaft. On a 55, you have some leway how short you may want to cut the column. You can cut it shorter to move the wheel closer to the dash and make it more comfortable if that's what you like. http://www.classicchevy.com/assets/p...evy/53-401.pdf

David types faster.

I see what you are saying with the bushing and bracket kit. I actually have a lower roller type bearing from Gearheads that I thought of using after shortening the column. Has anyone ever gone that route or is it easier to go the 53-104 and 53-401 route as David and Don suggested?
