Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2009: Steering column bracket
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By coreywalker on Saturday, November 28, 2009 - 05:00 pm:

I was going to put my steering column on my chassis today. I was sandblasting the bracket and the part # on the bottom started with what appeared to be TT. The frame I have is a 21-23 or so. I got the column at a swap meet 10 years or more ago, around the time I got the frame. When I went to bolt it up only one of the bottom holes lined up. The holes in the frame are too close together. I get the bolt through the side and the bolt closest to the front to work. I thought all later columns were the same even on TT's except the 26-27's. If I drill another hole it will bolt up, that will be o.k. I guess? Why the difference?

Corey, the main difference is the TT frame is taller than than the T frame. Also the TT bracket doesn't have a place for the felt seal on top. The felt sets on top of the bracket and has a stamped cover that goes over it. I don't know why Henry made them like that, does anybody else have any idea? I think you might be better off finding the correct bracket. They aren't hard to find. I may have one around here somewhere. Dave

That's it then, it's a TT column. It has the felt in that stamped cover on top of it. If you've got one let me know. Thanks. Corey

I just looked at a pic of one on ebay. The spark rod fits into it different as well.

Corey, I just looked and I can't find one right now, although I did find three of them for a TT. I will keep my eyes open. Dave

Call Don Lang at Lang's old car parts - I am sure he will likely have one. David is correct - they are not hard to find.

There is one on ebay I submitted a best offer on. I looked this morning and I have a 26-27 bracket, damaged. I have every one but the one I need. I will be ordering some stuff from Lang's this evening. If I order on Sunday my parts are here by Wednesday usually. That's fast.

Corey, I found one if you still need it. I was pretty sure I had one, just had to quit looking for it! Dave

I just paid for that one on ebay an hour or two ago. $9.99, that was pretty good. I can probably sell the TT one for that, then I'll just be out the shipping. Thank you for looking. I know what you mean, maybe now that I've given up on finding it, the other stud for my radius rod ball cap will show up. I looked everywhere for it, but I guess they are only $1.50.

The TT steering column lower bracket is different than the ones for cars. The columns, rods, etc are all the same. (That is assuming you also know that the '26-'27 columns have a different shaped flange and columns installed on cars with 21" wheels from the factory have lower gearing)
