In the past when pulling the engine on our Speedster I have simply removed the body but now with some changes it is a difficult task.

So, now I want to pull the steering column to clear things and think this is the procedure. Please advise.

My plan:

1. Disconnect all linkages and wiring connected to steering column.

2. Remove stove bolts and nuts from flange at fire wall.

3. pull steering wheel and shaft up, back, and out.

4. Unbolt lower fasteners holding mechanism to frame allowing power plant to be pulled forward.

5. It is understood that the radiator and headlights will be removed as well.

I just did this on my 1919. However, I had to remove the pitman arm and bracket that connects the column to the frame from the end of the steering column in order to get it through the firewall.

Often, the greatest pain in the donkey is getting out the little pin holding the advance/retard lever to the control rod. If this can easily be done, it is simple enough to remove that lever and the pitman arm, and withdraw the column through the lower bracket.

Speedsters are often more complicated due to non standard modifications to all sorts of stuff.
