66 Bel Air tilt column coupler help, SOS
Permalink  
 


Pulled my non tilt column out of my 66 Bel Air, okay?

Bought a 66 Caprice tilt column, cool huh ?

One LITTLE problem.

First pic is my original steering shaft.

Second pic is the tilt column shaft.

Seems maybe GM used different types couplers for tilt or non?

I guess what I need is a slotted or female type flange with a 3/4" 36 spline coupler .

Anybody that can she20160217_133854.jpg20160217_133909.jpgd some light on this will be welcome.

I've done my eBay search 30 different ways.

Anybody been down this road?

There are a few tilt flanges. 3 types basically. And a spring. Did you get the VERY important companion parts to install? Upper and lower dash parts are different. Wiring adapter harness for turn signal switch. Plastic canceller part that bolts to bottom of steering wheel. All the levers are tilt only.Caprice has chrome knobs. I'll have to drag out my parts and take some pics I suppose. Also know that the upper dash parts for belair/biscayne are different than impala/caprice.
