    Questions about misc parts?

    In the middle of restoring my 66' and had a few questions. Thanks!

    1)Are the u-joints replaceable or repairable for the steering?



    2)These tubes/spacers must have come off my suspension somewhere but I'm not sure where?



    3)Also these 2 spacers I'm not sure where they came from?



    4)Does it make sense to re-plate all of my seat hardware when I can just buy new ones from Stoddard?



    5)This small 911 emblem was on my dash. I know it doesn't belong there. Anyone know what it is from?

    Hi Brad.
    I'm guessing there are plenty of steering knuckles available.
    pic #3 are the spacers behind the torsion bar covers, I believe 3 per side.
    I think the dash emblem is from a later model, like '67 & up.
    Good luck on the other stuff!

    I have never heard of anybody replacing the u joints but good used ones are pretty common.
    The tubes are guides for your E Brake cables as they enter your rear trailing arms.
    I'm not sure where the spacers came from.
    It makes sense to replate your original fasteners
    The "911" came from the glove box of a 67 or 68 911

    Ciao

    There are only two spacers per car. It goes on the rear lower bolt fitting of the torsion bar cover. Once it's in place you will find the cover has an even face to bolt against.

    You beat me to it Franz - with a much better illustration!

    You guys are awesome! Thanks for your assistance.

    When you get your car back from the painter and they give you parts in a bag, sometimes it's hard to know what part of the car they came from
