I have a 68 tilt column that needs a rebuild and could be missing a couple of parts. My Osborn's manual is not a lot of help here. Does anyone know of a good resource? Or has anyone done this that I can fire some really specific questions at?
Thanks as always,
Simon
P.S. Here's one for starters. My Osborn bible indicates that both tilt and fixed columns use the same rag joint, but on e-Bay I've seen a few folks selling rag joints specifically for tilt columns, at prices far above what I would pay for a normal rag joint -- and they look the same. What's the deal there???

Re the rag joint, think they are giving out an ebay h*nd job. I have a 68 tilt that I got on V-M. It came with the rag joint which looks the same as the other. Luckily it is complete and in good working order save for a cut harness. Wish I could be of more help. What's missing on yours?
