Hi folks Iam assembling the 26/7 roadster pickup,Could someone please tell me or show me which way the bracket around the steering shaft bolts on to the bulkhead, is it mounted on the inside or the out side of the bulkead,?would some one have a picture of it ,Many thanks Gerry (NZ)
The flange of the steering column should be on the interior side of the firewall, or bulkhead as you call it.
Hi thankyou for that.But it was not the flange of the sterring column .it is the seperate plate that bolts around the sterring column.many thanks Gerry (NZ).
Could you post a picture of the part you reference?
If you are talking about this plate https://www.modeltford.com/item/3515A.aspx If memory serves me correctly it goes on the engine side of the firewall. Two bolts mount the plate to the firewall, and two go to support the flange. Once you get the two upper bolts into the flange to support the steering column, that second plate will only fit one way for everything to line up.
There is the plate that mounts to the dash. It mounts from the side toward the occupants. As you may note, the face screw holds are large and have a counter sink profile. Two screws go in through the face secured by nuts, and two screws go up trough the bracket and through the dash from the bottom. Vendors in the U.S. sell interior screws sets with the required screws.
Here is a picture of one on my 1926, I hope this is what you are after.
My '26 Canadian Touring is exactly the same as David Menzies' photo.
