1969 Original Power Steering Coupler / Rag Joint?
« on: October 15, 2015, 03:27:49 AM »
Having a debate over which is the correct power steering coupler for a 1969 Camaro - would appreciate if someone would please post a photo. Does it have an overrider bracket or a thicker cast yoke and no bracket?

Here are the 2 PS coupler styles we have been discussing, which is a factory original type?

Overrider Bracket Style Coupler


Large Yoke Style Coupler

The second one looks like my original. Unfortunately I had to replace it with one that looks like the top one. I kept the old one just in case I wanted to rebuild it some day.

I, too, Have the 2nd type, Large Yoke. It is in nice shape as far as I can tell. No close up pics. It is original factory installed appearing.

Here's a couple of pictures of mine after I glass beaded the rust off and used fast etch on it (zinc phosphate) to keep it from rusting again.  Please excuse the bad pictures.

Lloyd - my 04B VN built '69 Z has the large yoke style as well.    I don't have a good picture of it to post unfortunately.

Thanks Hans, its become pretty clear from the replies that the large yoke style coupler is correct for 1969 PS, now all I need to do is locate one of them.
