'66 floor shift column reassembly
Need some help please.
We pulled the stock column thinking we would install an IDIDIT, but didn't. Next, we disassembled the upper part of the column, but I had purchased the wrong parts, and it sat for a month. I've now attempted to reassemble, and something is wrong. From reading the assembly manual, I thought it would be simple to use the "nipple" on the column support to position the column, add the lower housing with the wiring harness through, then the upper portion of the column, and screw everything together.
The upper cup ends up roughly 60 degrees counter clockwise to where I think it should be, based on the turn signal handle position. I've tried to turn things to fit, however when I do, the lower portion of the column with the "trough" no longer lines up with the support bracket.
Also, the upper portion of the column sits flush until i screw the turn signal switch in, and then it moves away from the lower portion by roughly 3/8", and I don't believe that is correct either?
Any thoughts appreciated.
