They didn't have distributers in the the 30s, they had squirrels in cages.

....don't worry about the ugly weld on the lower control arm bracket in pic 1...It has a good deep weld underneath, I was trying to fill weld it up a bit so I could grind a nice radius but then I couldn't get in to grind it down yet...

Now......the side I thought would be easier until I remembered there is a steering shaft and a dipstick that need to co-habit the space.....Do you like my funnel and hose steering shaft replica? My father in law looked in there and said " that hose will probably melt because of the headers....:O_o::O_o: um... o..k....lol..

So .. now i guess I get to deal with my steering shaft first and then move on the these headers. I am toying with cutting the weird end off my steering shaft and adapting some normal shaft and joints.
Has anyone cut the end off the column shaft before? My guess is it's hollow and about 3/4" id.... because it is 1" od and appears to be .125 wall material.

I've only modified the intermediate shaft between the r&p and the column. It was cast and solid, but unfortunately I don't remember if the column was solid or if it was a tube of some sort, it's been a while. Seems like the end was solid, but I might be thinking of a Fox since that was the last one I've messed with. Maybe @74stang2togo can tell you since he was just in that area...?

The shaft coming out of the column is rectangular on the end, and is relatively thin stuff. It's actually two pieces inside the column, and with a bit of pressure, you can push the part that sticks out of the firewall and the joint up towards the column.
