MG TD TF 1500 - Steering Wheel Locking Clamp
|My brother and myself are both rebuilding TFs. His is being converted from LHD to RHD, mine is RHD from new. On mine the the clamp that locks the in/out of the steering wheel sits directly against the outer, fixed, part of the steering column. This means the lower clamp - the one that fits to the fire wall triangular support - wraps around the boss to the flange that holds in the lower felt bush. Because of the steering position conversion my brother has had to make up a new clamp (following my instruction over the phone!). He has wrapped the clamp around the column itself rather the boss and it does fit better in this position - the boss is slightly tapered. However, this requires the fixed part of the steering column to be moved down towards to flexi joint and leaves a gap between the clamp under the steering wheel and the fixed tube. Who is correct and is it possible I have used the wrong hole in the fire wall support? The clamp I have used is 'P' section, with a central bolt hole and a spacer is needed to bridge the gap between this and the support.|
