Thanks,

Mainly on the center-driver's side of the firewall, I have those unknown holes... Several look drilled, but a few look almost stamped...


Yes, I am aware of the missing clamp... Now if I can only find it. That's what I get for disassembling this thing more than 30 years ago... Not visible in those pictures, but the lower column bearing race has slid a bit further down the column... kind of rusted in place now...

I have a new lower bearing and plastic bearing housing (IIRC, from Hinshaws?), as well as a new turn signal switch and upper bearing...
