1989 chevy celebrity with adjustable steering and pulsating intermitant wipers etc. Steering wheel loose and rotates in 45 degree angle from side to side and up and down.

Well, first of all, the odds are the tilt section can be tightened back up without replacing anything. There are 3 bolts that get loose over time.
Second, if you really do need another column, any A body GM car built between 85 and 90 will work. That includes Pontiac 6000, Buick Century, and Olds Cutlass Cierra. The only real difference is the steering wheel which you would not have to change.

How to adjust rear brakes on toyota coaster

There are usually two ways to go about adjusting the rear brakes, both involve getting the rear wheels off the ground on jack stands. Look for a small oval shaped rubber plug near the top on the brake backing plate where the brake line goes, there is a star adjuster wheel inside, with screwdriver rotate the wheel upward, there will be a clicking noise, ecah click tightens the brake, rotate the wheel while doing this until the wheel has a slight drag while rotating then stop. The other whay is to remove the wheel and the brake drum, then adjust the star adjuster a little at a time until the brake drums just fits over the brake shoes.

    How to remove rear brake shoes

    How to Replace Brake Shoes
    (DIY Complexity: Moderate / DIY Time: 3.2 hours)

    1. Brake Shoe Set

    1. Combination Wrench Set
    2. Floor Jack
    3. Jack Stand Set
    4. Mallet Hammer
    5. Brake Spring Tool
    6. Flat Head Screwdriver
    7. Needle Nose Pliers
    8. Tire Iron
    9. Brake Resetting Gauge

    1. Brake Cleaner

    Step 1 * Secure your vehicle on a level surface, making sure your car will not roll or lean when jacked up.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

    Step 2 * Break the lug nuts loose but do not remove. Lift up your vehicle using a floor jack.
    o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

    o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

    Step 3 * Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.

    Step 4 * Remove the lug nuts. Remove the wheels.
    o Tip: Make sure the parking brake is released before removing the brake drum.

    Step 5 * Remove the brake drum. If necessary, back off the star wheel adjuster.
    o Tip: Hit the brake drum with a rubber mallet to break it loose from a rusted hub.

    Step 6 * Clean the brake assembly using a“wet wipe method”. This method uses a spray bottle with water and detergent. Do not use compressed air to clean the brakes. Inspect the brake shoes for wear or damage.
    o Tip: It is a good idea to leave one side assembled to use as a reference while you work on the other side.

    Step 7 * Remove the primary and secondary brake shoe return springs from the anchor pin and brake shoes.
    o Tip: The primary spring is connected to the front (primary) brake shoe and the secondary spring is connected to the rear (secondary) brake shoe.

    Step 8 * Remove the adjuster cable and spring assembly. Remove the star adjusting screw and thread the adjuster all the way in.

    Step 9 * Remove the front brake shoe retainer. Remove the front brake shoe and parking brake link.

    Step 10 * Remove the parking brake lever from the rear brake shoe. Remove the rear brake shoe retainer and remove the rear brake shoe.
    o Tip: Specialty brake tools are available to make brake shoe removal easier; but it is possible to remove the brake components with pliers.
    o Tip: While you have the drum brake assembly apart, pry the outer seal away from the wheel cylinder and check for leaking brake fluid. If any brake fluid is leaking, replace or rebuild the wheel cylinder

    Step 11 * Apply white lithium grease to the backing plate contact points.

    Step 12 * Install the new brake shoes in the reverse order of removal. Be careful to keep the new brake shoes clean.

    Step 13 * Inspect the brake drum and resurface or replace if necessary. Install the brake drum and adjust the brake shoes.
    o Tip: There is a slot on the back of the backing plate usually blocked with a rubber grommet. To adjust the brakes, insert a screw driver into the slot and turn the star wheel adjuster. Spin the brake drum and stop adjusting when you feel a slight drag.

    Step 14 * Install the wheels. Torque lug nuts to manufacturer’s specifications.

    Step 15 * Lower vehicle and test drive to verify repairs.

    Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

    Never think of it as standing in front of the car. Always explain the location, side, or area of the car as if sitting behind the driver's wheel. Clockwise from behind the wheel (counter clockwise if standing in front). See it alleviates that problem. Look at the angle of the fan blades. They should be pulling air in.
