Hi all,

So before painting my tractor I removed my dash complete with the dash support bracket (the splines on the 2 outer bolts that hold the 2 together we're stripped so I left them as one piece). My predicament now is that I can't seem to find a way to slide it back in without scratching the dash panel on the back of the steering column. When I removed it the first time scratching obviously wasn't an issue.

Is there a trick i'm missing or do I have to remove the whole steering column?

If I need to do the latter is there anything I need to know?

I've heard that getting the steering wheel off in itself can be a bit of a drama. I don't have any pullers or gadgets like that.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Ferg

Good advice. I ended up taking the 4 bolts out completely and the whole column just lifted right off. For some reason I thought the inside of the column was a bit more complicated and would require more work to remove.

Anyhow this has given me a few more questions.
Firstly, how high should the oil level be inside the box? The current level is probably about 6 inches below the top of the box.

Secondly, when the column came off there appeared to be a little raised tab that the throttle leaver rod sits on. This snapped right off as you can see from the attached pic. Will there be a problem if I put it back together and the throttle rod sits a fraction lower. I was thinking I could cold weld another piece of metal back in its place or even a small bolt head to raise the rod to the right height.

Look forward to any suggestions.

Cheers, Ferg

Maybe you can loosen those 4 bolts at the base just a bit to give enough clearance to slide it in without scratching.

Hiya! It's been too long since I did the wife's, but I do like the paint job. Gold was the color Ford used on the Demonstrators back in. . . 1959(?) I should know that. I have one out there that one of the prior owners top coated in blue.
Will be nice to see it when you get it together.
