That swivel looks to be a neat idea. The bushing is nice work and looks slick.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

thanks 8man!...i thought about just making a piece similar to what i bought...but being crunched for time i had to take the easy way out...its a pretty simple piece..and looking back i should have went ahead and just made one
what i like about it is it swivels, so no matter what angle the column is to the firewall ,it will fit
