Tilt Steering Column has collapsed

Post by slumley1 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 1:06 pm

I have tilt steering in my CJ7. It started to get a little loose and then just completely collapsed. I followed Dale's rebuild procedures, which were very helpful, but now am not sure what's going on. Most of what I've read says that you need to get in and tighten up the 4 x E8 torx and should be good. Mine were mostly tight and I seem to have another problem. The lower tilt housing support that the 4 bolts through isn't attached to anything. Also, there was a strip of metal sitting in there. I'm not sure what the problem is or what steps I need to take next. Can anyone give me some suggestions??
