Been awhile since I was able to play with this. Got back up there and got the steering squared away. I made the column and finally tig'd the collar to the shaft and then could just bolt the steering wheel to the collar.

The bracket holding the column in place is 1/2" CR. Machined the 1.75" bore and then drilled/tapped for 1/4"-20 socket cap screws. Split it and that allows the bracket to sandwich the column.

New Vintiques with Coker Firestone bias ply tires. 15x5 front and 16x6 rear. Overall tire height is 26" front and 30" rear based on approximate measurements.

Also mocked the radiator at the height I want. Next I will hard mount it and then plumb the fuel tank.

Getting there.........
