hi, i got a 1967 ford mustang with a long shaft steering colum. i have a had vibration on my steering wheel ever since i bought the car and i have done everything to make it stop. i have no rag joint on my steering colum does any one think if i put a rag joint on my steering colum that it might solve the vibration. it does that even ideling or driving down the road it is just a little ennoying. and i thing it might transfer from the motor to my steering colum. thanks in advance combiner

No to a rag joint. Have you looked for contact between the engine and steering linkage?

Be sure all three bolts for the steering box to the frame are tight and look for contact with the steering center link and other components to the engine or exhaust, and exhaust to the shock towers etc.

You said you tried "everything" but didn't list what those things were.

So I have to ask - you've checked the front wheels for balance right?

The front wheels wouldn't be an issue at idle, but good thinking for when it's rolling.

OK I see you put your location in your profile now but have not responded to my PM. My buddy Terry is in the Peg as well and probably could help you out.

Did you use factory style motor and trans mounts or polyurethane? The latter will transfer vibration.

have you tried disconnecting the accessory belt(s) and momentarily starting the engine?
