Default Improved Steering Column Support

does anyone know why there is not the improved steering column bracket for the 28-29 models? does the structure of the earlier models not accommodate such a bracket?

Prolly cos they were not used by Ford in the early cars. I make such a bracket for '28-9 RHD cars which can be adapted to the later ones.

My 29 included one when I bought the car. From the stuff I read, its only a matter of drilling one hole to modify the 30-31 support to fit the bolt pattern of the 28-29 dash rail. The reason mine needed the support was pretty apparent, so if you have a 28-29 without the support, I would recommend getting the support.

If you make the installation with an adapter piece of 3/16 ths plate you can do it without drilling any holes in the body.

I am sure you are correct but every single time I try the "search" function on this site, I come up with literally dozens of pages of scores of hits, the vast number of which are apparently unrelated, even when I put the searched item in parentheses.


This subject does come up consistently but usually within the context of leaks around the original bracket on the gas tank.
