Steering Column Inner Shaft Required +2 (Now Sourced)

PostPost by: jones+2 » Mon May 21, 2012 4:55 pm

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can get a new or second hand non collapsible column. The previous owner has used a metric set screw with no shoulder in the universal joint / coupling which has subsequently made a mess of the splines on the shaft.

Cheers,
Mike

I suspect you're going to have to keep an eye on the usual auction sites - unless the usual parts suppliers have recently started re-manufacturing them. It's also worth looking on the Triumph suppliers websites as I think both the early and late columns are Triumph sourced.

Good luck!

Thanks John,

I saw that earlier but doesn't look the same. The one off my car is the same thickness right until the last ft where it becomes slimmer to connect to the coupling.

Cheers,
Mike
