Sorry, I think I misunderstood. A BB column has a bolt on flange, and a SB column has a press on flange. Either one will work. Are you saying that the old column has a pressed on flange where the rag joint bolts,and the new column also has a pressed on flange where the rag joint bolts?
You should be able to unbolt the rag joint from the old column, and leave the old rag joint on the steering box,and then remove the column from the car. Then remove the rag joint from the new column, leaving just the flange on the new column. The new column should then bolt into the car, and the old rag joint will bolt to the flange on the new column.
The column for a 66 is one piece,from the firewall to the flange(bolt on , or pressed on) that bolts to the rag joint on the steering box. Are you saying the new column has an intermediate shaft?
