I`ve been following the recent THREADS on steering columns. Just reinstalled mine on a `26 roadster yesterday. The bottom steering bracket which bolts to the frame can be installed under or on top of the lower frame rail and the wood block fits, either way. decided to check some of my other "Ts" and found it both ways. anyone know how it was done at the factory? I`d hate to be incorrect.......Paul

As I recall, I mounted mine under. Or wait no it was over, ya over. No, no I'm pretty sure it was under. Oh crap, mount it under. Or whatever you think is correct. Over. ????

What ever feels right! Actually on the bottom of the lower rail...

Hey troop, I know what feels right. It's got nothing to do with any darn steering column.

I thought the '26/'27 lower bracket was the different one with the reinforcing edge that won't lay flat if mounted up inside the frame rail. I know the angle on them is a little different also. As far as I know, all model Ts originally had the bracket bolted to the bottom of the frame rail. I believe in '26/'27 that only the TT and the Fordor sedan used lower brackets like the earlier ones. I may be wrong about the sedan.
Bolting it up inside the frame rail is a speedster trick to be able to lower the steering wheel for the driver with a little less interference with the transmission pedals.
I know that I used a '26/'27 bracket once on a speedster. I had to make a special block to fit it inside the frame rail.
Good luck.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
