Steering Column

Post by Roadcaptain S3 on Mon May 10, 2010 2:57 pm

Switching from column shift to floor, Will columns from other years work, or do I have to have the 73-77 GM?

you need a 73-77 column,but stick with chevelle/elky. some of the 75-77 olds and buicks had the dimmer switch on the blinker lever.

looks alright but wouldnt you have to buy everything from the turnsignal switch to the steering wheel
like the lock plate/spring/cancelling cam/ horn contact button and the steering wheel itself?

let me know if you dont get it for I have a floor shift column complete with key from the 76 but if you can change your turn signal over to make it work that would be a bonus and its red with steering wheel not that you need another wheel my friend


NON TILT THOUGH IF THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT

I sold a PERFECT column to a guy in jersey for 175,that a friend of mine had hanging in his garage. I have about 6 tilt/floor columns,but i could not let them go for 75.

I have 3 orphan columns that I'm trying to make a tilt/tele into. I bought a 76 corvette tilt/telescopic column and am trying to piece them together. hope that it will work and look bad a$$.

How hard will that be to get the vette column to fit??? isn't that way shorter than the Monte?

6 COLUMNS???? I'm in the car, should hit cleveland about 0300 hrs.
You don't lock the garage do you?? if one of those columns is missing in the morning, Rago did it!!! Very Happy Very Happy

I haven't got a clue about vette columns, and not much of a clue about G3 columns......would you have to weld in some pieces to match the width?
