Can a Chevy tilt column be used in a D series IH?
I used a universal stainless tilt column in mine. It cost 150 off eBay. I had to create a bracket from the old column, and used a flaming river "bowtie" to tie it into the existing lower column.
Yes GM can work.
But you will have to improvise on the bracket
There are factory tilt wheels in 74-75.
What year of truck? Asking because the pre-'74 D's have the IGN in the dash and no steering wheel lock. The tilt columns in '74 and up have the column switch. I only mention it in case the difference is of any concern. If not, then please disregard.
I believe I have a Chevy tilt, but I have a manual transmission in the truck
Is that supposed to be a question.
What we've got here, is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach.
No, just saying I have a Chevy tilt I could use but I’m almost positive it’s got a shifter, so unless I find a 74-75 IH one, a non shift tilt will be a pita to find, or get an aftermarket one. Totally forgot about the shift problem when I asked about a tilt column. And I also have a dash ignition, so that’s another problem. Non tilt it is then.
Right on. My favorite. Cool hand Luke !
The column key tumbler can be removed or otherwise defeated to render the wheel lock inactive and you don't have to use the column ignition switch, but if looks are important, that might not be the best route.
The aftermarkets are pretty much the same as the GM ones, except you need to do something about the mounting bracket.
