I am adding tilt away steering to my 67 and need help with:
1. Size of hole to drill in door jamb and where to locate for switch (measurements?)
2. Vacuum canister placement below hood hinge (measurement?)
3. Where to drill hole in firewall for vacuum hose routing (measurements?)
Pics would be nice too
Thanks for any help ::

Not sure on '67's but on my '69 the door jamb was dimpeled where the switch is located. Might even be the same on the inner fender area for the vac. tank.

I'll give it a shot. My 67 is completely apart right now but I was able to get some info.

The door portion is located as shown below. The hole is 7/8" in diameter.

The photo below shows the passenger side apron. There may be two or three tiny indentations on your apron where I've highlighted. This is where my cannister was located. It may have been a little different for cars with AC...mine is a non-AC car.

I'd like to help with the routing through the firewall, but I can't get to my notes on that one as of yet. I'll try to help out this weekend with that. Or maybe another kind vmfer will supply.

Your help is much appreciated. The dimples on the inner fender leads me to another question...how was the vacuum can attatched? In the shop manual it looks like it was bolted to the inner fender from the other side with two nuts. Is that right? This is also a non AC car.
Thanks

I was looking around for the bracket that attaches the canister and couldn't find it. But as I recall it was two screws that held the bracket onto the apron. The canister then attached to that.
