Steering coupler (rag joint) won't fit on steering gear box
The center hole of the steering coupler is too small and won't fit over the shaft on the gear box.
The box is a new/rebuilt Cardone unit and the coupler is a Lares 200. I checked out the Lares web site and they list 3 possibilities for a '69 Camaro; 200, 201, and 202. I purchased the parts through Advance Auto ... I figured they would know enough to give me the one that would fit the box I was getting, but I guess not. Anyway, the cast part of the coupler cracked when I was tapping it on, so it's going back for replacement.
Has anyone ever used a Lares coupler and do you know if a 201 or 202 would fit?
