After a turn the steering does not return to center on my 67. maybe half way at most.

The problem is when I got it the brake lights didnt work so I had to swap out the turn signal switch before I would drive it. So I don not know if it was like this before I took apart the colomn.

Could I have done something wrong putting the column back together? What are possible causes?

thanks
lou

I agree. It's the castor adjustment of the front wheels that dictates how well you car "centers" itself and how fast the wheel returns to center. Like riding a bike with no hands. Possible due to positive caster. Try turning the handlebars around backwards and going no hands. Not possible, due to too much negative castor. If you have the alignment angles set to specs on the front end, you will not have a problem.
