    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    On thinking about this for a moment I think you would lose your safety interlock if you don't use both factory castings, Look at the inside middle and you should see where the castings lock together if your rubber donut fails. you would need to retain the long pins for safety if you did not...

    Hello all, I got my new hood extension today and even though I had read unkind things about them I had no other choice but to try one, First it has the wrong bend in front (or my aftermarket hood has) I had to apply a lot of pressure to get it straight enough to get it to bolt on. Now I see...

    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    I did not view the pokey wires to be a real issue...just an illustration that it was reinforced with a lot of wire...I got out my hobby nippers and trimmed them off. I was happy with the lares joint, curious what npd sells but happy with my outcome.

    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    the current lares 201 has lots of wire reinforcement, the sharp wire ends are constantly poking your fingers as you assemble it. I guess the bottom line question/answer of this thread to me is that the rubber insert for the tilt column is the same size as rubber insert in the non tilt columns.

    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    To reply to the comment about no back up if the rubber fails: you have to look close but inside of my early 71 there is 2 tangs cast into the pieces that lock together if the rubber joint was to fail. Mine did not have the lock pins originally, just 4 steel rivets.

    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    So first I assembled the joint with the Dorman 3100 rag (3105 is also same size) and I noted that d/t the hole being half a hole off you could only use a plain (non shouldered bolt) 5/16" bolt in holes and that was literally stretching the rubber to make it fit. It would work but not really...

    Need help with the infamous tilt column rag joint please...

    As title states I am in the middle of rebuilding my rag joint and my first attempt at getting a dorman rubber piece did not pan out. This donut is very close but not close enough. The bolt circle is just a bit too small. I haven't searched the local parts stores yet but I wanted to know if...

    Jerry's 72 Mustang build

    That picture of corner where back of wheel well meets the trunk explains why I had to "stretch" my wheel well corner to fit my new trunk. Would like to have noticed that earlier..nice looking work. I put my floor in same way.
