[DML] Re: Steering problem

It does sound like the notorious steering bushing and maybe a binding
U-joint. Also inspect the honeycomb cage under the dash around the
steering column. On one car that had a lot of looseness I found that
the metal cage was broken in several spots. It can be welded back
together. Just don't overdo the repair. Keep in mind that cage is
supposed to collapse in the event of a severe front end collision.
Another possability is the parts for the adjustable column are not
properly installed. On another car I worked on no matter how tight you
tightened the knob the column would move. After taking it all apart we
found some washers missing and many of the parts were not installed in
the correct order. On a Delorean the steering may be a little hard to
turn (no power steering) but if there is ANY play or looseness
something is seriously wrong. In general it is not safe to drive until
this is corrected.
