To solve your problem with the steering column one would need to know what
year and model of vehicle it came out of.  It basically comes down to the
control arm on the column and what options it originally had in the vehicle.
If you have the data at a minimum I could get an exploded drawing of the
column form my local Chevrolet dealer (happens to be the 4th largest seller
of GM parts in the US and is the most helpful parts dealer I have ever dealt
with, though they still have not convinced me to swap my 302 for a 350 ;-)).
Having taken several of these apart from several years of models there are
some basic similarities and significant differences.  They did change in
some way almost every year.

Hello,
I just purchased a 53 flatbed with a three speed tranny,
the rear was changed to a late model one, but now the speedo
is wrong.(40mph is really 60mph).
Does any know of a vendor that sells gears for the tranny?
Thanks
Bill

Good Folks,
 I am looking for a gear shift lever for my 52 F-1. The guy I purchased it from had thrown in a floor shift. I am restoring stock and am having a devil of a time with trying to find the lever. Any help, as usual, would be greatly appreciated.

 Cheers,
   Ed browder

Mine came from a '78 Olds and has both on the stalk.

I have to sell my 1950 F1 pickup. Too many toys.

The original flat head runs well it got a complete overhaul about 1000 miles
ago. The truck has fiberglass front fenders, has been converted to 12 volt,
has a new clutch and resurfaced fly wheel. It is a runner, but is definitely
a project. I am willing to sell it for only $2000.00 first one with cash
takes away my baby. Phone 507-451-8220 e-mail thielehmstd ll.net. Thanks
Dave
