Questions for anyone who put PS in 75 or older CJ5
Okay, so I finally have a power steering column- shoutout to Ricky- and I'm trying to see how to install in it my 75. With the mounting bracket that comes with it, it will sit below the dash. So, I took that off and it fits fine in the dash where the old one was, but there isn't a good way to mount the sucker.
I managed to get the mounting plate off of the old column (feels kinda silly calling a pipe a column)and I was figuring that I could widen the hole in it to fit on the new column.
I also see that flaming river and ididit make a mount, but it would still have the column a little lower than I'd like it from the looks of it.
Also, should the end of the column go out the firewall on the flat part or the angled part? I have a fiberglass tub, so I'm not sure if its the same as stock. It angles back about halfway down the firewall.
If this makes no sense, I can try and get some pictures of everything.
