I'm new to the forum, and havn't lurked much. I sure am glad to find you all!
I just bought a 1992 F-350 4X4 automatic with a crew cab and a long box. I am not sure of the motor yet, but I think it's an IDI 7.3l, no turbo. The truck is very rough with a lot of issues. The front fuel tank leaks, there is a very loud exhaust note, and the biggest deal is the steering wheel.
The steering wheel is loose. I mean it literally flopps around. It does turn the tires, and I drove it 4 and a half hours lke this, but it was SCARY. Upon getting home, I immediatley removed the plastic covers on the steerring column. The wheel itself (not the column) is loose, and the plastic parts betweeen the wheel and the column are partially broken. The mechanism that clicks when you turn a steering wheel, and shuts off the turn signals appears to be broken. The horn goes off when you try to steer.
I went to a ford dealer who gave me a printout schematic of my wheel/steering column, and told me how to remove the steering wheel, but I can't get the damn steerring wheel off! I can see the shaft, looks like its geared.
Has anyone removed an early 90's ford truck steering wheel?
