  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

1951 Pontiac Chieftian.  Steering seems real sloppy.  Wondering what can be done to tighten it up a bit since there is a LOT of play in the wheel when driving it.  Would appreciate any suggestions, ideas, or web sites where I can get help or parts to correct this problem.  Many Thanks!

Start with checking your wheel bearings, then move to your steering components. Often the gearboxes just wear out and a new one can make it drive like new. Have someone move the wheel while you watch the steering and see where the slack is coming from. A car that old, I would expect it all is worn out, but some may have been already replaced.
