    Hi Gang,

    I just got done replacing my arms and manual box in my 66 cuda. I ordered a Coupler rebuild kit on Ebay for $12 and will be doing that next. Anyone know of aftermarket manual box-couplers that work? Seems like such an easy joint I don't know why Chrysler went with this elaborate box type coupler. Then again, I'm no engineer either :)

    Thanks in advance,

    Bill

    Steer & Gear has a variety of new couplers, repair parts for old couplers, and redesigned coupler covers.

    i removed the end shaft from the column, got a length of splined shaft by flaming river and the correct joint and tigged it into the column just as the original colimn. had a really nice feel and was quite a bit cheaper than any adapter available, looked better too.
