Our coupler length is based on the EXACT length difference between the Borgeson box and the OE power box. This is a constant. Even with slight differences in coupler body lengths, this is never an issue. #67 seems to refer to getting an alignment after the box install. Since it's impossible to replace one casting with another exactly, you must at least check the toe before driving after the box is installed.Can anyone (esp Bergman) comment on KD's length install issue from post #67? Has anyone else had this issue when using the Bergman coupler that I plan to use? Mine is a '68 B body with collapsible stock steering column. (KD - I hope it's ok we keep your thread going with these questions...)
The small sector was 1972 and older cars and C body models.how do I know if I need the small sector box or the large sector box?
Small sector until 72. Large, 73 later.The small sector was 1972 and older cars and C body models.
Regarding the length of the steering shaft, I simply figured that the plastic shear pins just got old and brittle and did break, allowing the shaft to compress slightly.
This is what I thought. During assembly from the factory, the slip shaft needed to be held in place. The nylon accomplished this. When properly installed, the tiny anti pullout pin on the side of the coupler and the snap ring and e clip retained the shaft at either end for safety.The term that I referenced is not related to the coupler. The shaft within a shaft is where I am referring.
