I have a question.. Had my column unbolted from the dash in order to get the gear box moved around while I detailed my engine compartment.. All is back together, motor is in and running but when I took her for a test drive i noticed that my turn signals would not cancel.. I also noticed that the horn will not work.. Looking at the steering wheel to the column I now have about 3/8' gab between the wheen and the "tube".. I have no idea how to pull the gear box on this car since there is no rag joint between the column and the gear box.. Should I loosen up the steering gear box and the column and push it back together? I can't believe that it could move that much but again, I have no idea what it looks like under that "tube".. Thanks in advance!

Got it fixed... I followed your direction and loosened the mounting bolts and slid the tube up to the wheel.. Horn contacts now mate and the turn signals now cancel... Anyone know how this assy is put together and if I had to pull teh gear box, can it be done with the engine in?????? Strange how these old cars are built- kinda worrys me that if ever in a front end collision- that darn tube to go right through you...... Sometimes I thank God for Ralph Nader and sometimes I'd like to slap him!!!
