  1. Called https://dcmclassics.com/suspension-parts/644-s-280-steering-column-gear-box-rebuilt-service.html and the guy on the phone said it was a 1934 only bushing. Awsome. At the same time I got an email back to a message I sent last night saying they replace the fiber bushing with a nylon one. Guess I'll see if they'll sell me a nylon one.
  2. Sadly no answer and their mailbox is full
  3. I have a Doodlebug that was made from a 1934 Dodge car. I can't tell if it was a sedan or a coupe. The engine was out of the car when I got it so I'm trying to swap in a 1957 Desoto 341. The problem is that the engine does not clear the steering column. I think I can modify the existing column to work, but I need a couple of bearings to support the shafts. The existing bearing at the steering wheel is some type of fibrous material that seems to hold up very well to wear. I need to find two more of these bearings. Does anybody have a source for them? My original plan was to use a sealed bearing, but the 3/4" shaft and 1.40" tube ID makes this impossible. My only other option would be to make one out of either bronze or UHMW.
