You answered it yourself! HEEEEEELP! Tthe "Help!" section in most chain auto parts stores. I belive its the same as the ones in the Help! section of replacement parts. Measure across the holes to verify.

Hay Rae
I don't think I could have driven it if the rubber had finished ripping. I noticed when I took it apart 2 thin metal plates which I supose is suposed to keep it from coming compleately apart. Unfortunantly on of those was broken as well. Doubble YIKES!!!!

Re: Stearing rubber connect shot

You can elliminate the rubber "puck" completely by using part of another steering shaft with the u-joint. Welding is required to accomplish this and it does make the steering feel "more direct". If I can get hold of a dig. cam, I'll take a pic of it and post it..........
