Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

I found a youtube video that explains the adjustment quite well, and what it does. I imagine I need a sector shaft and worm gear at the least and bearings etc. While the adjuster does tighten, which...

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

I think I will just take it somewhere, and pay the $300 plus parts to have it done. I don't have the time or the knowledge for this kind of thing. Honestly I don't. I'd probably end up with it too...

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

I wonder if the not hardened properly thing can be done after the fact. I work for a place that gets heat treating done on a daily basis. Or does it have to done pre machining? Most f the stuff we...

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

Not yet, but since I guess I am going to be doing this myself apparently, I guess I will.

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

Well, I am worse off than when I started now... The guy I gave the steering box to took it apart, washed out all of the lubricant, removed two gaskets from the lower plate, and handed it back to me....

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Luckily I have another impact socket that is pretty much exactly the outer diameter of the bearing, so I should be able to tap the new one back in without an issue.

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

It's out. As far as a stop, mine looks like the tube is reamed out to a slightly larger diameter down to where the bearing is supposed to sit, and that's all. I used an impact socket as a slide...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Yeah, it's out, the box is getting rebuilt, now I just need to paint or powder the steering tube and shifter assembly. I wanted to get the bearing out before taking it somewhere, rather than chip it...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Anyone that could help with how to get the bearing out of the top, it would be appreciated? Do you have to have something all the way through the lower end to knock it out the top? Is there a lip at...

Re: Can someone show me the column shifter assembly page from a 1950 F-1 shop manual?

I think I just found it.. So you can just undo the clamp at the bottom, and the whole thing comes off, and just a pin and a spring at the top? That looks simple enough? That way painting will be...

Can someone show me the column shifter assembly page from a 1950 F-1 shop manual?

I am wanting to powder coat or paint the column parts, but I want to break it down so the results look a little nicer. Am I opening a can of worms, or is it pretty simple to do? I know there's an...

Re: 50 F-1, column shifter replacement bushing install?

I wouldn't be against nylon ones to tell the truth. If anyone makes any? Mine aren't falling apart, but I imagine they will start once they're used again for a few months.

50 F-1, column shifter replacement bushing install?

I've got the column rebuild kit in the cart, and waiting on the box and a few other things, since I would rather not wait a month possibly to put everything back together, and possibly lose parts,...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

The bearing is crunchy, and I definitely don't want to try replacing it later.

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

On my phone right now, and any attempt to enlarge them closes them. I will look at them more when I get home. I just want to get everything squared away, and do it once when I put the steering box...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

MUCH clearer now. Thanks for the help guys! I remembera spring, though for some reason I think it was under the horn bucket thing. Or is there two? It seemed right at the time for it to be there,...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Where does this go then? It has 3517 in the part number though. So, is all of the rubber gone, and it's the same part? The wedge piece in my pic doesn't seem like it's meant to hold up to a whole lot...

Re: 1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

Well, I just stuck my fingers down into the lip, and found that it turns, so I guess it's some sort of bearing. The inner diameter is much larger than the steering shaft. Pictures in a couple of...

1950 F-1 steering column internal parts?

I just got my steering column out, and the steering shaft out of the steering column.

Now... The only thing at the bottom of the column was the tube, and the clamp holding it onto the steering...

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

It's a bare floor. I have a non original seat, but I have to fab some brackets for it. I gave up until I feel like buying some special pair of pliers that will leave a hand free to tug the shift...

Re: Steering box removal. 1950 F-1

Okay, EVERYTHING, is loose, and the stupid shift lever REFUSES to come off of the column. Both of the spring pins are pushed in, in fact they stick in a little, and then ,pop out if you wiggle the...
