Tilt Steering Knob

Hi Guys,

I finally did it - swapped out the steering column, and now have a 78 Bronco Tilt Steering Column in my 71 Ford Ranger XLT.

One problem: The Tilt Steering Column I got doesn't have the ****/handle on it to do the tilting - it's missing! (Everything else is fine).

Help!

Bob

Its the turn signal arm. It should push down to release the tilt mechanism and its spring loaded to return when you let go of it.. Shouldn't take much pressure to move it so if its seems too hard wiggle the steering wheel up an down a bit if you need too..

Thanks! (Duuuuhhhh on Us!). Nevermind on that "tilt steering ****". It works perfectly - just push the turn signal lever forward, and we're in business.
