anybody know this column thanks.charley
still need help on this???????????charley
Beats the heck outta me. I'll bounce this thread and maybe someone else knows.
Never saw anything like it. I hope someone can enlighten a bunch of us!
Pictures 2 and 4 look like incomplete standard T steering column parts. Pictures 1 and 3 don't look like part of a T at all. Picture 1 at first glance looks like a '26/'27 rear end end, however, looking closer I see it is not? How about a couple more shots from other angles and the whole thing?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
This may be one of those items you can never know for sure what it came out of.
And if you did you might wind up carrying it to swap meets for years and nobody buys it.
Maybe someone will identify it here on the forum.
I have looked at it some more & it is for a t !! there are more parts that go on the top that would make it the same length as a t. the casting at the firewall is the same dimensions as t. the spark &gas levers come out of the two holes in the top. thanks to everyone.charley
Is there a lock cylinder too? What's the steering ratio? Maybe this was made as an accessory.. Ford used 4:1 1909-24 and 5:1 '25-'27.
See my recent thread about another unidentified steering gear: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/397224.html?1382948652
Well I took it apart and it looks like it might be a compound rack and pinion, but I am not a gear head like some. Let me know what you think. I have more pictures.
pix 8 thanks guys.charley
Can't be any help but seeing the insides does help understand how it works. Too bad it's missing the top part that holds the steering wheel. Looks like the missing part would have a key shaped piece that fit in the slot and rides around or in the center shaft loosely with a stub shaft sticking out the missing cover for the steering wheel then was bolted on the top by the four bolts. But only guessing from what I see in the photos. If you can figure out how to make the parts might be a neat item.
