Steering shaft for a 64 is a solid shaft and box type.

No columns other than a 61 to 64 truck will bolt in.

You can modify the existing box and shaft to accept an aftermarket tilt. Machining of the steeriring shaft stub and fabrication of a new lower mount will be needed.

I have a 88 Truck tilt in my 64 modified to fit.

In your stock column you say it is wore out? There is only a single replaceable bearing in there. Describe wore out.

1961/64: There are two steering column bearings and retainers.

One bearing and retainer fit into the upper flange at the top, one of each fits into upper flange at the bottom.

2) C3DZ3517A .. Bearing

2) B1AZ3518A .. Retainer.

Both these parts are available from Ford and fit Mustangs, Falcons, Fairlanes and other 1960's cars.

1965/72 columns use the same bearings and retainers, but are in different locations.

One each is in the upper flange at the top, one each is at the bottom of the column.

How big is the gap between the steering wheel and the shift hub?

I don't mean to hijack any thread, but I have the same problem, cept' in the 65. Numberdummy, Do you have a diagram for the 65 f100 steering column with column shift. My steering is getting very sloppy and I noticed just below the bottom flange that the bearing ring is almost hanging out. It needs attention now. Any parts list online?

Welcome to ( FTE ) !

You will need to check your ( Cab Mounts ) if they are wore out or rusted rotted then

as soon as you rebuild that Column it will be in the same shape real Soon ! So check

and repair or replace if needed !
