    cortina steering column

    I've got a cortina steering column to use with my IFS. looked at portland pops biva build thread and he has used the same, great thinks me.
    How wrong can I be his uses a shaft that is 19 mm across, mine is only 16mm across. We are both using the triangular ends to the column and using part of the round shaft.
    Now I cant find any shafts that are that big , so does anybody have any ideas how to join the 16mm shaft to maybe 3/4 inch dd shaft?

    Failing that I could look around for another column, dont really want to that. cant afford a new shiny one either.
    I'm stuck Help

    if the triangle bit is the problem then rally design do a uj thats triangle one end and splined the other. and the splined shaft and sleeves to suit.

    not sure on spline count, but whatever mk1/2 escorts were. i think most older english fords up to the 80's were the same spline. so should cover cortinas. neil.
