Tilted Steering Wheel
Posted 16 February 2012 - 07:06 PM
I already have my steering column lowered but the flat angle of the wheel is still painful, running on slicks for half an hour gets to be a bit arduous. So.... I want to alter the the steering column so that the wheel is more vertical, I realise I'll need one or two universal joints and bracketry etc but does anyone have a real drawing of how they did it, I'm not the most technical and would love to see a finished solution in its entirety rather than 'buy an allegro one and hey presto' etc.
I can follow drawings or series of pictures but there's little actually out there that i can find to such a common issue...

I've got all the components for mine but I haven't cut or welded anything yet as I haven't mounted my seat yet. Depending on how central and how high your seat is, your column length and UJ position may differ to everybody else. I guess thats why nobody has documented their dimensions etc.
I have images of my intended set up if it's any use to you.

Here are the bits I'm actually using (minus the adjustable spanner):
I'm not actually going to use the steel collars pictured on the shafts.

Thats why I'm going for a mount similar to the one I posted, so that the cowl can still be fitted with minimal trimming. Shouldn't be too hard to imagine, I would post pic's but I haven't got that far yet
