I'm in the middle of rebuilding my steering column for my 69 non-tilt column. From taking it all apart, I see that some of the little parts could use some replacing. This weekend, the local Pick-a-part is having a 50% off sale, and I'm wondering what columns would have the same parts. I heard that most GM columns from the 60's to the early 90's have the same inner workings. Any truth to that?

Or I could just grab one that matches (kinda) and take it for parts. The specific parts that could use replacement include:

  • Steering Shaft stud that holds the wheel on (stripped)
  • horn connection
  • Lock Plate Retaining Ring
There were also a couple of flat copper pieces (about an 1/8" wide by 2" long), that I have no idea what they were for.



Anyone have experience in rebuilding columns and the little pieces involved?

Banksx501, there are many little bitty parts in there that all have go in right and in the proper sequence. I have worked on many of them but I always took them apart myself. If it was in front of me I could get it back together but a step by step explanation would be difficult for you to understand because it has been so long for me I would have t work through the sequence myself. I searched youtube briefly and there are a lot of videos out there on the process. If you could print out the exploded view above it will help a lot and then watch the videos.

I would take all the peace's to local junk yard. Right next to them are little shops that could rebuilt it for you and cut you a couple of keys too :yes: I ended up trading mine for one all done with new keys :D
