    I have three A body dart steering columns.
    How do I know if the are automatic or 4 speed columns?
    I've seen guys look and they instantly know??
    Also, I believe the PS column is shorter than manual, so it requires an adapter, ids this correct?
    Thanks

    Other than the shifter on the column for non-floor shifted auto/manuals I believe they are the same physically. Yes power steering columns are shorter and require an adapter to work with a manual box. I'm talking 67-69 columns. Not sure about 70-up.
