I need to take the steering column out of a 1959 f100 because its a 3 on the column and my truck was changed to on the floor and I want to put it back to original. I need instructions for each column one with the shifter on the coumn andone on the floor
Thankyou for trying to help, so after taking the plate off and taking it off box and Pitman arm I can take it out from the cab, ill try this thankyou. But I have a 3 on the column so I would have to unhook that somehow to?
take the steering wheel off, under it you will find a retaining clip that holds the steering housing to the shaft. remove that and unbolt the housing from the dashboard. and the shaft comes out from below, column housing comes out from in the cab
the box shouldn't have to come off.
only the outer housing & circular hole cover of the floor & the housing will slip off after the steering wheel is removed the collar clamp removed from the bottom of the dash and the clamp that holds the housing to the steering box and of coarse the sig lite wires unplugged.....
"as i remember it".... been a loooong a while since i had mine apart & i installed one off a 57 automatic car on mine when i changed over to auto trans. Nuthin looks crappier than a newer column in an old truck...those old spindly columns just have too much class.
