Ididit Retrofit Tilt Column Shift – 60-66 Chevy & GMC Truck
This retrofit column is designed to fit your Chevy Truck and does NOT require modification to your original vehicle to install. These columns are designed with unique locating slots and brackets that allow for perfect installation every time. Using an ididit installation kit, install your new steering column in place of the old. A neutral safety switch is included and the shift pattern on the column allows you to either use a 3 or 4-speed automatic transmission. A shift linkage is required for installation and will attach to the lower shift arm provided on the column. Using an adapter, add an aftermarket wheel and the gripping surface of the new wheel will be in the same location as the original. Standard features include 8-position tilt, self-canceling turn signals, 4-way flashers, knobs & levers, 3-7/8in wiring plug, and a 3/4-36 lower shaft.
A stock 1960-66 wheel can NOT be used with a 1960-66 ididit column.
This kit includes all the necessary parts you will need to install the column to the gearbox. All you need to know is the diameter of the gearbox input shaft and the number of splines.
We had the builder on a budget in mind when we designed this kit. The original joint and intermediate shaft are used. For the 1960-66 column, the shaft will need to be cut and modified to match the 3/4-DD coupler. The factory joint can be used for the 1967-72 column. Due to age, the original rag joint may be worn so please double check to make sure it is in good condition. ididit, inc. always recommends replacing the rag joint.
For vehicles with an original factory harness, a 4-way flasher kit is included in your installation kit. This 4-way flasher kit will not only add safety to your vehicle, but will also convert your original wiring harness to the 3-7/8in plug found on your ididit column. A wiring harness adapter is included with the 1967-72 Chevy Truck column.
Many aftermarket wiring companies offer replacement harnesses that incorporate a 4-way flasher unit as well as the flat 3-7/8in plug. If you are using one of these harnesses, a 4-way flasher kit is not necessary.
