<< m putting an '82 model GM column in my '55 F250.  Does anyone have the
wiring for the connectors(three I think) on the column?  say from painless
wiring, etc.  I borrowed a buddys Chilton manual, but the wiring diagrams
are hard to follow.  Electronic copies or a website are welcome or we can
try faxing.
Earl, try  They had a tech article about GM column
installation in a f-100, I believe it has all the harness connections printed

I installed an EZ wire kit in my panel; reading from the instructions:


Measure the plug on your column.  If it is 3 7/8, use the flat
connector; if 4 1/4, use the connector with the flap.

Code                            GM color

horn sw:  lt green
G                                 black
LF signal:  lt blue
H                                 lt blue
RF signal: blue
J                                   blue
hazard:  dk brown
K                                brown
turn flasher:  purple
L                                   purple
LR turn:  yellow
M                                 yellow
RR turn:  green
N                                 green
brake switch:  white
P                                  white

Hope that helps a little; what I did was to go junkin and find one with
the matching length plug (there are 2, mentioned above), cut the wires
"upstream", and take this plug end with the length of wires I just cut
home, splice them and plug in to my new column.  Just don't cut the
wires too close to the plug if you do it this way.

Does anyone know what book I could get to tell me what size sheetmetal,
engine, parts would fit into what type trucks. Ie, will a front fender
from a 49 f5 fit a 49 f2?
