How do I center the Steering Wheel?
While I had the engine and transmission out of my 69 RS this winter, I decided to replace the rag joint, pitman arm and leaking power steering box. The carís back on the road now and drives fine, but unfortunately the steering wheel is now about 60 degrees off-center. Iím a little surprised by that considering the steering components only go together one way. The rest of the suspension was rebuilt and aligned a couple years ago, and the wheel was centered before I replace the steering box. Whatís the best way to re-align the steering wheel? I thought I could just pull the steering wheel off and put it back on straight, but it looks like the horn button mechanism only allows it to go on one way. Second choice is to shorten one tie rod a couple turns and lengthen the other one by the same amount. Is that how itís done?
