Re: Steering column mount?

I closed up the hole and used this on my tilt column, old mocked up right now. I'll post another once cleaned up and finished.

Cut an old rubber floor mat to make a seal.

GM tilt from Speedway. The only ones I saw there were for flush mount(mikebte). I suppose I could re-shape mine, just looking to see if someone had a better idea, Kel

Re: Steering column mount?

This is what I used at dash(SS), thinking might be best option on the bottom.

Re: Steering column mount?

that's actually the floor mount
i think you need something a little heavier on the dash
i'd hate for the column to come off in your lap driving down the road

That's what I thought at first, but after reading the Q & A on SW, went ahead and got it...

I have 56 Chevy 3200 truck. Could this mount be used as a "upper" mount to the dash as well as a lower mount to the floor, using part #91032978.



Product Owner - mainmotorco
John, we have used them as upper and lower mounts on a few of the trucks we have built.
I had bought this floor mount, after looking at it....again, it will work. I thought because it was a flush mount, it wouldn't work because my floor/firewall was not flat? I have it temporarily screwed down to finish the linkage. Small hole to fill now. Thanks for the input, Kel

Re: Steering column mount?

I made an aluminum plate and bolted through the toe board.
