    Yeah I could see that being an issue. I don't have that problem however, because I am running the '92 column in my '93 that has all the splines. After any front end work, if it's off, I just simply remove the wheel, straighten up the front wheels and then bolt my steering wheel back on, done lol.

          What are the advantages of doing this conversion?

          And how did you like it over the long term?

          Would you or did you put it back the way it was?

            Some people did it to gain room for their manifolds, some prefer the feel. It is nice out on the road, but slowly maneuvering through areas isn't fun and forget your wife moving the car lol.

              It's not about women, you just need to have good grip and shoulder strength.

              It's cool for an occasional autoX car, but it's really not worth deleting it. I've had mine deleted for years, it's ok I guess. Really not worth it imo.
              It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

                The two small ports closest to the rack are M12 x 1.25. The largest port is NO IT IS NOT M16 x 1.5. The medium is an oil galley plug indeed!
