'69 Valiant 318 manual 4sp with floor shifter. No ignition switch or shifter on the column I've been helping a buddy with some wiring on his Valiant. It's had some really shoddy things done by a previous owner. Both sections of the steering collar housings (for lack of correct terminology) are loose. The one directly behind the steering wheel which houses the signal switch and the rear one which seems to be trim. The two bearing housing nuts were lose. One will tighten the other will not. The stud coming through on the one that will not tighten protrudes further than the other. I've never gotten into one of these columns this far and can't find any diagrams or images of what those studs look like on the backside. I was reading in one magazine online that they're wedges? Even with the nuts loose and the housings being able to rock on the protruding steering shaft, the top one does not move up and down on the shaft as though it can be pulled off and removed. In the bottom photo you can see the nut and stud on the left hanging lose. I'm not sure but the stud may be stripped at the point it should be tightening. The nut spins but the stud seems firm and not spinning with it. I downloaded a factory manual from MyMopar but all examples in there are for manual and automatic column shift cars. There's also no illustrations of the two sections removed or taken apart. Can this section of the column be taken apart and serviced with the column in the vehicle. Any help on this would be appreciated.
