Steering Column Spring

Post by GWelty » Mon Aug 12, 2013 8:54 pm

I have a 56 Continental and at the top of the steering shaft is a spring. Can anyone tell me the purpose of the spring? I think my steering wheel is a dodge.

Once you have installed the steering column and the bearing along with the inner race to the bearing in the top of the column the springs goes on before the wheel.
See the photo below I have taken a photo with the spring going on (lower photo) and then I put the nut (top photo) on just so you can see it. As you can see the spring will hold pressure against the inner race of the bearing.

Thanks, now I see that my bearing has come apart and no longer in place. Oh well another part to find.
