  1. How to remove 927 Dodge Steering Wheel

    Thanks I'll check it out.
  2. How to remove 927 Dodge Steering Wheel

    That makes sense but it will make my steering wheel issue even worse so it does look like I'll have to turn 3/8 inch from inside of wheel (1/4 to allow for bush and an extra 1/8 to give nut more purchase on the steering shaft. Not sure why wheel doesn't fit unless its from a different vehicle, its certainly looks like the original. Next Job is rear shackles on front spring, got them off (Passenger side top at bit of a pain to remove) and pins look ok but shackles themselves are worn. Will investigate building them up and redrilling or bushing. Stuart
  3. How to remove 927 Dodge Steering Wheel

    Thanks Ron most helpful... Got the tube out and then found the nut holding the steering wheel had fallen off... was just sitting inside the housing so thats one issue I'm glad to fix. Next issue however is there doesn't seem to be any bushing inside steering shaft to centre it, should there be? And then I think reason nut fell off in the first place its only just getting purchase on the steering shaft. Given its importance more is better. It almost looks like I might have to get wheel hud turned out slightly so it sits deeper on the shaft. Thanks in advance for your help its most appreciated. Stuart

    Thanks I suspected as much but at this point tubes aren't the issue its the Aluminium cover that has the pins in it. It seems to be threaded or pressed on but I don't want to apply too much force until I know. it does look like it can be removed while the tubes are still fitted. I have removed connections at the bottom so can pull up a couple of inches so the slot in cover will go over tubes. Stuart

    I need to remove this next bit to get to nut that holds on steering wheel. Stuart
  6. I took my car a 1927 Dodge Tourer for a compliance check which is required in New Zealand before I can put it back on the road. Was reasonably happy with list I've got to fix with no major items (I hope) King Pins need to be shimmed for too much vertical movement, rear shackles on front springs worn, Oil Leak RHR Axle, needs tyre and horn to work (was working when I left home and worked fine afterwards) and finally the reason I'm removing steering wheel top bush needs to be replaced. I've got it this far but can't get any further, the two pins are slotted so I assume they should screw out but they just spin. Any ideas Stuart

  8. I have recently acquired a 1927 Dodge Touring and the steering is challenging to say the least. Its more like an aim in the general direction you would want to go and eventually car would get there. I'm constantly having to make significant adjustments to try and maintain a straight ahead travel. I just jacked the front up and while theres minimal free play in the straight ahead position as soon as you get off centre the play gets progressively worse until we talking between 6-8 inches at 1/2 to full lock. There is no binding and wheels move smoothly left to right and vice versa. Front wheel bearing feel fine and there doesn't seem to be excessive play on kingpins or steering joints.I'm thinking I'll need to remove steering box for overhaul but before I do that any ideas?
