    Alright here I am feeling like a damn idiot, I can not figure out how to get my steering column out of my car and need some advice! I have it all loose inside the car (55 Olds) and the linkage is off and I removed the collar at the steering box but the column will not come off the steering box. There has to be something holding it that I don't know of, anybody got any advice or have done it before?
     
  2. i'm sure the inner steering shaft goes right inside the box. you will need to pull the steering wheel off for the outer column tube to come off

    Some of the old GM's you had to pull the box column and all out thru the floor.

    I had thought about pulling the wheel and the box and dropping the entire unit through the floor but I was hoping there was a different way. I will start with the wheel and go from there. Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue but on a 53 coronet. Do you think it's the same deal?

  6. Pull the steering wheel and unbolt the steering box,it has to come out together with the column. HRP

  8. Here's the exploded view of my Henry J colum and box, the rod that has the worm gear attached is what the steering wheel attaches too, worm gear end is inside the box. 20170219_144022.jpg
