Hello All,

I was seeing if anyone has or knows of a source for the steering column mast jacket cover seal. I was working on my column earlier and flipping through the assy manual I noticed there was a seal I didn't have, well upon further inspection a tiny piece was still on mine. I looked around but couldn't find anything, looked on eBay and saw a used jacket cover that had one on there, but it didn't look complete, the manual shows a "U-shaped" gasket.

Hi mate. Are you talking about the seal that seals the column through the firewall? There are plenty of places you can buy any seal. It might be a case of using different terminology in your searches. Try googling 64 impala steering column seal. Have a look at images I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.
Jason.

If you're talking about the slender rubber seal that goes on the lower mast jacket where it sits against the dash, I'm not aware of any repros but it's the same seal that's used around the '59 &'60 speedo housing, the '63 & '64 tachometer housing and also found on "some" '61 & '62 Biscaynes & Belairs around the taillight trim.
Time to visit your local junk yard.

Verne, from your description, such a gasket material can be had from Restoration Specialties in PA. All that they need is a small snippet of the original material to match it up to. The last time that I bought some from them was at Carlisle swap meet, and I think it was about $1.50 per foot.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

I've bought the rubber dash speedo seal for the 59, it was available at most suppliers.

Thanks for the responses. Verne that's exactly what it is! Don thanks for the link, that's what it looks like. Another one of those small things I'm slowly finding on my car I never knew existed.
