1966 Tbird steering shaft removal

Discussion in '1955 - 1966 Classic Ford Thunderbird' started by Mikey78, Oct 17, 2019.

  1. Hey guys,

    I looked in the book and didn't see it but maybe I missed it. What bolts need to be removed/loosened to slide the shaft back a few inches to get the coupler on. I've never loosened this before so any help would be appreciated. I added a photo.

    At the very bottom of the column, inside the engine compartment, there is a bolt that is the “hinge” for the swinging column. Loosen that, and several under dash (part of swinging mechanism) and you should be able to pull it back far enough.
