'65-'67 Solid-Shaft Steering Columns
When you're doing a tilt-away or '68-up collapsible steering column, a Randall's conversion is straightforward. For '65-'67 solid-shaft columns, this is a test of fabrication skills. Randall's suggests cutting the steering column as shown to take 3 inches off the tube. The steering shaft has to be cut and machined into a double-D shape to fit to the steering coupling. This mandates a visit to a machine shop. The steering column tube should be 28 3/8 inches from the collar at the steering wheel to the tube end. The accompanying images should give you some idea of what's involved. Detailed instructions come with the Randall's Rack and Pinion system.
