Is there anything that goes around the column at the dash, to stop it from rattling. Or do you just make something yourself?

There is a column support clip. Interesting,the early ones were fairly thick,but later changed to a pretty thin piece of metal. These were stacked in the parts dept., and sometimes you can still find one that is really 2-3 stuck together.

From the Body Parts and Price List, '26-'27

p/n40160X Cushion (steering column)

p/n40166X Cushion (steering column) lower

Lang's sells the 3500RC replacement cushion, works too on the '22-'25. You need 2 for the '26-'27. While not a real good repro, the original cushions were more like thin fabric filled rubber like material, works better than no rubber cushion as you will have a visible gap and rattles without something there. I have used generic rubber u channel to get by.

Pat, I found a hunk of felt for a gasket or seal cut it to fit and it worked well. Looks old timey too !!!

Thanks for the info, and idea's. I don't need it yet, but now I can make it, or add it to a order I make.

One thing I don't do, is run out of questions. Here I'm learning all the time!

Thanks, Pat

Lightened up your picture some :-)



Felt piece is a good idea for rattle less.

Here is dash without the cushions for the upper and lower, and you can see the amount of gap. Henry filled that with the cushions!

You can cut a piece of rubber tubing and slit it lengthwise and put it on.

Warren, my thought too. I have time to make a nice looking one.

What is the lever all the way to the right in the dash for?

Adam -- That's the choke when you pull on it and the fuel/air mixture adjustment when you turn it.

Ok. I have a hole in my dash and found a part that looks like that. Before my grandpa died he was getting things together to fix up. I have been looking at the choke and mixture adjustments, and my adjustment needle has a flat plate and not a "U" shaped where the adjuster hooks to. How can I modify it?
