I decided the one piece steering column that fits like a glove, was also a spear in the event of a crash and would just come straight back through the chest. Must be getting old seeing these things now that wouldn't bother me a while back.  Roll Eyes So, I revisited the vehicle recycling centre (scrappy) and removed a complete MX5 column with all the lock, and switches still intact. 10 later and its home. Chopped it up and already feeling lost, Had a plan, new plan, plan D is looking better. Why did I not just leave it alone. Collapsible column, load of uj's and it should almost be correct, ha we'll see. Pictures as soon as a tack weld has been placed in the correct positions.

Are you a member of the Westfield forum ? I saw one of their IVA builds on The Continuum ( Facebook Group) which was very interesting ?

A complete column for a tenner? That's s bargain.
When we built the Pop, Loony & I used a Morris Minor column & were quite pleased that we'd managed to graft on the collapsible section from a VW Beetle -until Mr Kapri pointed out that it was between 2 fixed mounting points on the body, so wouldn't collapse as intended. Fortunately it wasn't required for the commercial SVA test we did anyway.

A work mate had a failed sva due to the column being too straight on a locost. This despite it had two joints in it, tester wanted more angle on them.

thanks for the comments, taken on board, I did consider the angle, so it would deflect on impact, however, I don't plan to test it. Grin

Back at it, at last the weather has broke, time to knuckle down. I need some help. Fuel pump for a fuel injection system. I would like it to be outside the tank, sort of inline. I have put a return line back into the tank. So any help on choosing a pump for an MX5 engine? and, as the fuel is being pumped around, does the tank become pressurised. Just a worry if it does. Havent allowed for the tank pressure
