Removing the Body

- Is the steering wheel shaft removable from the steering
gear without disassembling the steering gear box? I have
the steering wheel & housing off already. I am removing
the steering wheel shaft so that I can remove the body.

- No it is not, you must remove the pit man arm, the side plate and
with draw the worm sector, then you can remove the steering shaft.

- When I did my Hotshot, I pulled the steering wheel off and
removed all the bolts from the steering box and pulled it out from the
bottom. Of course, my engine was already out and the car was up
- Removing the entire steering box, and pedal assemblies first is
the proper way to remove your body. then you can lift the body straight
up without having to wiggle around those obstacles.
