Hello,

I am trying to retrofit a modern steering column and I am at the point of trying to couple the new column to the steering shaft and I need to know the spline count on the steering shaft at the steering box. Anyone have any idea as to the spline count and/or a source of steering u-joints that will work with the splined steering shaft?

Thanks,

Nathan

I wanna say that there is not splines at the box. the shaft goes straight through, and up to the goofy rag/safety joint deal. When I had to re route my steering, I ended up pulling the box apart and pulling the shaft out. I then cut it about 3 inches from the box and bored it, to accept the splined section for a joint to connect.

I think beanoil is right. If I were doing that I'd cut the stock shaft and weld on a new end that mated to the column.
