Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

Let's see if I can clarify. The gap I'm referring to is between back side of steering wheel and the column. You can see the white plastic piece I believe to cancel turn signal when coming out of a turn. The gap is 1/2 " . The rag joint appears to be comparable in size to the old. With both pinch bolts installed loose not tight the rag joint is as far on the gear box as possible and the steering shaft is as far in as possible. If I remove the pinch bolt on the steering shaft side I could probably get the shaft in further but then there is no provision for pinch bolt to go through.

When I see stuff that doesn't make any sense I am forced to figure out what the hell is going on. If you're using the same steering column and steering wheel this swap would have nothing to do with your problem. Unless of course the steering column is somehow not put together properly, then the steering shaft would be able to move and gain the 1/2" you've described.

Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

I'm trying to explain this to make sense.. looking at the firewall where the steering column comes through there is a clamp on steering shaft to keep it in place. I loosened the clamp slid steering shaft ( steering wheel included) back to install rag joint on to box. Then slid shaft into shaft side of rag joint with shaft in position to install pinch bolt. The steering wheel is not in original location. I.e. The gap I'm referring to. If I remove the pinch bolt I can slide shaft in to rag joint far enough to take up the gap at steering wheel. Now the notch in steering shaft is past bolt hole and pinch bolt will not go in.

I am by no means an expert or even an amateur on these issues, but I thought 1967 was the first year for collapsible columns with the shaft in a shaft lower part.

Post some pictures of the steering wheel area of the column and the column down from the firewall.

It sounds like the column housing may be lower than it should be.

Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

I have a 70 column right here, so maybe that's not the same as a 66. But the steering shaft is in a fixed position and doesn't move up or down. The column can be adjusted, but the steering shaft is down the middle of the column and shouldn't be moving inside the column.

Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

I've read the first 10 pages and now I'm more confused than before. I need. Steering box from a 92-97 grand Cherokee but what about the lines? I know the return is simple but what about the pressure? At first everyone mentioned using Lee's adapters but I see his sight is gone so who has them now? If I go the AN fitting route what do I need nipple wise for the pump?

What about the pump end of it? That is what I used, but I had also put a newer pump on that used the o-ring fittings as well.

Sorry, I assumed they got the Jeep pump or at least the pump pressure fitting from the Jeep pump. Fitting will screw right into the Chevelle pump if that's the way they want to go.

Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

All you need to change on the pump end is the fitting that screws into the back of the pump (that the hose then screws into).

The thread from the fitting into the pump is the same for all pumps.

You can pick one up at a junkyard, or from an aftermarket supplier.
