My steering wheel/shaft on my 68 AC B-112 moves around like crazy. I can not find any part on the parts manual to match anything I see. Can someone tell me why my steering wheel/shaft moves all over place? must be a bushing but i cant find the part number. Your help is much appreciated. 
 
Please watch the following video I made to better help explain the problem

There is a (rubber?) bushing that goes in the dash.

   Not sure about that bushing???  It could be that but the way that moves it looks like the the tube may be broken out of the dash.  if it were the bushing just the wheel would move but if you look at the vid you can see the entire tube moving around.  Unless the b-12 are different than the b-10's, I would have to go look at my machines to see.

I think the tube stops at the dash and the shaft is supported by the bushing there.

Look it over and see if that makes sense.

   That would make more sense.  My b-10 has that bushing but the tube comes up to the steering wheel.

thanks guys. I will check this all out and see if those parts suggested fix it. Problem was.. I must have the wrong manual, because i dont see the same diagram or parts/part numbers that were suggested above.  so that part number comes back to this: http://www.jackssmal...77SM/2283495/ps

 

50 bucks for a piece of rubber! :D

Yea I'd try making one first. If that don't work out you could probably rob one from somebody's parts tractor that has a bushing thats still in good shape

Pop a side panel off and check out the lower portion of the shaft. These rubber bushings have a small collar that wears away and on flathood tractors it can fall through the dash and simply slide down. Slide it back up and a hose clamp beneath it will keep it from happening again.

Worth a look anyway...I see it all the time.

My B-110 is the exact same way. I think I will look behind the side panel like Josh said and see if something is still behind there.

 

If one were to have to replace this seal, how hard is it to get that stuff out to put the new one in??

Piece of cake if your steering wheel will pop off without a battle.
