  • Steering post jacket length

    O.K., sooner or later I'll get this together. I am [u]</u>still[u]</u> trying to figure this automatic conversion business... I recall someone said it would be much easier to use all Studebaker parts than to use G.M. the engineering has already been done!![] That may be true, but...[xx(]

    Anyway, I need the length for the automatic steering post jacket on a 1963 Champ Pickup. The part number I understand is 1691291P. Thanks to Mr. Biggs for helping me out with that number. Haven't got my new parts catalog yet.

    I'm thinking I can either lengthen or shorten the jacket to work on truck.

    32 & 7/16" is the length according to the 8E Champ parts book.

    Miscreant at large.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
