Direction's flector replacement
Hello everyone,
I need your lights on a technical operation. In the perspective of reducing a relatively large game in the direction, I tightened the adjusting screw of the steering box, which has already improved things.  Big Grin

I'm also considering changing the flector, which looks like the original look, and that's where I have a doubt. The existing is, as it were, sealed with large rivets flat head too, to release it, I must cut them but there will be no backtrack possible. 
The part I took at CJ is different, with a nut / bolt system. Has any of you ever done this type of operation? Because if it's not good, I find myself blocked and without direction. Undecided

You have a tilt column, so that is a unique steering coupler. Before the other reproductions were available, I had used many of the disc replacement kits. You simply need to grind the head off the rivets and disassemble the coupler. Be sure to keep the stamped washers that are part of the original unit, as the supplied round washers don't make a suitable replacement. Make sure you orient the upper and lower cast components as they are shown in your photo when you reassemble it with the new disc.

The flexible steering coupling is commonly called a rag joint. By searching the forum for it you will be able to find a lot of information. Here is an example:

“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.”
--Albert Einstein
I do not have lots of detail but here is a picture of a tilt column that I replaced the rag joint on. I got the replacement at local part house was not difficult to find made by Dorman. You do need a kit that supplies the studs that interlock in case the rubber part fails. You cannot see in the picture.
