    Are the wear parts of the old '63 steering coupler with the bolt instead of the roll pin the same? If I buy a rebuild kit for the '66 and up will the sliders and pin within the coupler work on the '63 (as well as the seal and cover clamp)?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    63 is rectangle, 66 has the circular bump in the middle so the 66 wont fit the 63 properly. Let me confirm....Hard to tell when they changed, but the early rectangle coupler had a different spring clip shape, top bump was more shallow but it would probably still be good. shoes were probably the same.
