Tilt Away Steering wheel
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:09:39 AM »
I am looking for a schematic for the tilt away steering. Anyone have an idea where to find some basic info on what makes this work (or not work as the case may be.)

Are you asking about how it functions or how to take apart a column?

My tilt away steering wheel wasn't working when I got the car, I was fine without it. Last summer my garage put on a new Power booster and master cylinder. When I picked the car up they had loosened the steering wheel. When we tightened it back up the steering wheel now has a "loose" feeling, in fact it moves about half an inch. Works ok but I want to figure out how to tighten it to eliminate this slack. Plus while I am at it I might as well see if I can get the tilt away to work.

The pins that hold the knuckle together may have backed out.  West Coast Classic Cougar sells an improved version with clips on the ends.

If you want the column rebuilt, I might know a guy.

Mongo, I ordered that book from the Ebay link you sent. I see that CJ Pony has it for 12.50 but the postage was $6. The Ebay cost was 15.60 with free shipping.
