need help, part ID and install tips

Help!!

Got old defunct alarm system out and all wires back to factory. Now starting on reinstall but the cold has fogged my brain and I can't recall where this part goes. I think it help stabilizes the steering column but for the life of me can't recall.

It has a slight crease down the center, about 45 degrees. something like this _/...

Almost exactly 13 inches long and 1 and 15/16ths wide.


Thanks much Board!

I think it just goes between the lower dash and the bulkhead. I still haven't put mine back on.
I think it just a finish piece.

The only reason I'm concerned about it being a "stabilizing" piece is because I had to move the truck and I can actually see the steering column and ignition block move when I turn the wheel and it certainly did not do that before..??

And thanks for the quick answer, send me a PM and I'll send you a Land Rover hat. I've got a ton of them and I don't wear hats...

If you have play in your steering column remove your dash and check the bar that bolts to the column and the bulkhead, enclosed pictures shows this, yours maybe a flat bar but it does the same thing.

Also check the tightness of the bracket bolts on the engine side of the bulkhead are also tight.

All seems nice and tight. Thank you roverman. Any idea what the metal piece is for? I swear it came from on top of the top the steering cowl. (if that's the right terminology)

It's got me on hold reassembling that side of the dash..

Thanks again.

Absolutely correct and thanks tomaco1!!!!

Finish piece on lower dash. Goes right above the pieces that cover pedals. Holes line up perfectly!

Thanks again!!!

Yes, it holds the cardboard trim panel that is likely long gone at this point.
