    thanks for the pictures. It sure looks like the original flexible coupling. Your car sure must have had an easy life with the lack of rust on the raw metal parts. I know that the original lower column bearings are very hard to find. It is interesting that you used a plastic bearing from a 1980s GM car and it seems to work quite well.

    I will get that picture.
    I have not, that I remember replaced the steering coupler. I don't think they are still available from Gm. The last I knew, the manual joint was avialable.
    The lower column bearing, well that I know about. The original one was shot. I replaced it with the newer style plastic bushing. Like an late 80's caprice. I could not find the original part, or what I thought was a suitable replacement bearing.

    I'll go get that picture and maybe refresh my memory.

    Another quick question. Your flexible coupling looks in awful good shape for a 40 year old car. Any chance that it was original? If not, do you know where or when it was purchased? It looks very original (particularly the stepped stop pins in the picture.)

    I have been researching the 1967-69 Camaros with respect to the flexible steering shaft couplings and the bearings on the lower end of the steering column. Would it be too much of a bother to take another picture of your steering column lower end and flex coupling? I would like you to rotate the steering wheel/steering coupling 1/2 of a turn from the original picture that you posted. Also a picture of the lower column bearing (from a slightly better angle would be appreciated as well.)
