Ugly Dash Is Finally Gone

Steering Column RemovalSteering Column RemovalSteering Column RemovalDash and Steering Column RemovalDash and Steering Column RemovalDash and Steering Column RemovalDash and Steering Column RemovalMy goal this evening was to finish getting the steering column and dash out of the car. Most of the dash was already disconnected, so I pulled the speedometer and labeled all of the wires so I’ll know where they’ll go back once everything starts to go back together. The steering column proved to be a challenge. Once everything was disconnected (so I thought), I figured the steering tube and shaft will pull right out. Well, it didn’t and after fighting it for an hour or so, I posted for help on an online forum and quickly got the response I was waiting for. Instead of just loosening the bolt on the uni joint, I should’ve removed it completely as the shaft has a groove for the bolt to slide through. 60 minute headache, 10 second fix. The wiring looks like a mess, but it’s actually somewhat organized. That’s why I take lots and lots of pictures, we’ll need them when this puzzle goes back together. Also noticed that the dash was made exactly 41 years and 2 days ago today.
