1140577920
Retrofit 1957 Chevy Tri-Five Tilt Column Shift Steering Column with Front Steer Rack - Chrome
Not Available
Pricing: $992.00

Description

Add the convenience of a column shift to your classic! Available with 8-position tilt or space-saving straight. This column comes complete with a neutral safety switch, as well as everything you'll need to use your original dash indicator (aftermarket shift indicator sold separately). The shift pattern on the column allows you to use either a 3 or 4-speed automatic transmission (except early Powerglides, as they have a reverse pattern transmission). A solid shift linkage (new or original) is required for installation and will attach to the lower shift arm provided on the column. This column is designed for your front steer rack and comes with an extended lower shaft to lessen the angle of your u-joint.

Special Notes

A Cable Shift Linkage Kit is NOT recommended for use with Tri-Fives

Warning: The 1957 Tilt Column Shift column will move the steering wheel 2" closer to your body compared to the original. To alleviate this issue use the available straight 1957 column shift or a "Shorty" 9 bolt adaptor with an aftermarket wheel.

Installation Kits

Deluxe Kit
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.

Econo Kit
We had the builder on a budget in mind when we designed this kit. The original joint and intermediate shaft are used. The shaft will need to be cut and modified to match the 3/4" DD coupler. 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.

Original Harness
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 7/8" plug found on your ididit column. (Only neccessary for 1964-66.)

Aftermarket Harness
Many aftermarket wiring companies offer replacement harnesses that incorporate a 4-way flasher unit as well as the flat 3 7/8" plug.  If you are using one of these harnesses, a 4-way flasher kit is not necessary.
