: 64 Steering column diameter

I've read the tech reference where it mentions the steering column diameter on a 64 being 13/16, but when I measured mine, it looked like it was 11/16. Is that possible? Could my measurements be off by an 1/8? I didn't have a caliper handy and used an adjustable wrench. Took the measurements quite a few times. Above and below the joint. Same size. It sure is skinny.

I'm thinking, crude measuring tools introduce too much error. Just want to make sure before I replace my rag joint.
