Let me tell yall a little story of my 64TR4 which I acquired in 1980. I
noticed that the steering had some play and when I looked at the steering
shaft I noticed the upper rubber bushing was in 2 parts and in a brilliant
flash of intellect, I deduced that it was separated to minimize road shock!
I went on to drive it that way for several years and even in the mountains
and down long grades at over 100mph. Then one evening on the way home I
turned a corner, or rather tried to, and it simply went straight. The
coupler had simply worn enough to separate. How lucky can one be? I guess
the 64TR4 deserves a renovation, which is under way. Now if I can only
figure a way to renovate me!
