Today I was working on a steering column for a Model T. I found a good set of gears, good shaft and everything was good except the bushing where the shaft fastens to the chassis. I found an old bushing and then I had to machine down the outer diameter but couldn't figure out how to hold it. Then I thought how would Lee (Pierce RIP) do this? He would have found a length of round steel, stuck it in the lathe, machined it down to be a tight fit on the bushing, then tap the bushing on to the shaft and put the whole thing in the lathe. It worked perfectly and now the steering column is just about done. Thanks Lee.

Good idea.I use an old piston pin bushing.They fit right in and all I have to do is lightly ream them to 3/4 on inside.
