    So here is the finished product. Ready to install in the car. Rebuilt the steering knuckle. Notice the red rubber. Swapped the steering wheel for this one mine was all cracked up. new lower bearing. Also new turn signal switch. Could not use the metal piece that went to the turn signal handle then to the switch. The had a plastic piece for replacement. Tried to get it out but did not want to force it and brake the new switch.

    A Steel wool pad does wonders for surface rust on the turn signal lever and gear shifter

    Hope you guy's are using stainless steel wool pad's. I have learned the steel wool is not a good thing to use it can transfer micro particles that will rust. Even have switched to stainless steel wire bushes. Some thing I picked up on from my friend Pete.

    Russ you said you rebuilt the knuckle. I looked in my parts manual to see what is in there. What all did you replace or repair. Also the bearing at the bottom of the shaft is smooth when I turn it. Big Mo.

    New pin- shoes- and the top rubber seal with holding bracket. Put new grease in it. Around the end where the bearing is the guy on U tube put a strip of peal and stick foam for a bottom seal. Just to keep dirt and such out of the bearing.
