The deeper I dig into my new rig, the more exciting things I find. I already knew the power steering box was leaking, and the steering shaft had no slip joint in it. I ended up pulling the whole setup out, and the bottom of the column had some bailing wire holding a red seal in at a funny angle. The seal is worn in an oval, and nothing else supports the shaft inside the column. Do I just need a new seal, or is there some sort of bushing or bearing missing here? As you can see they did a beautiful job fabricating the new firewall mount. I also like the 3/8" weld at the bottom of the shaft U joint. Best case scenarion I'm going to redo the steering linkages from that shaft out, worst case maybe I need a new column? Steering is one thing I don't want to take a chance with, as this FJ40 will be purpose built for road racing. Not really. Does anyone recognize this column? GM?
