140 or maybe a early 240: steering column bush/bearing replacement
The 140 rally car makes very nasty shrieks from the steering column when under serious load. With the steering wheel removed, there’s a lot of play at the top end of the shaft.
I guess there must be bushes or bearings in the column that need replacing.
The 140 is currently under the tender ministrations of Customs, so I can’t look at it just yet. So I pulled the steering column from a parts 244, 1977 IIRC. It looks pretty much the same as the 1974 144 from the firewall back. But I can’t get the shaft out of the column to see what bushes/bearings are involved or how to replace them.
Has anybody done this or got any ideas?
