1990 GMC Sierra Column shifter troubles

Hello all, Ive been lurking for a while now and finally decided to join. Ive got a problem I havent been able to find the answer to.. Ive got a 1990 GMC Sierra w/ the column shift and the shifter was broken off by the PO and replaced with a B&M shifter.

First off, I cant seem to figure out how to use the damn thing lol and Im not really a fan of a floor shifter... without a center console in a bench truck!

I have no clue how the factory column shifter works.. whats involved with it, cable operated? I have nothing to look at as the shifter part around the column is also broken with the shifter handle. All of the linkage down to the tranny is gone from the shifter. I think the column shifter may have broken off in gear which would explain why my steering wheel wont lock? Is the column shift removable from the column or.. would a new steering column be required here..?

Any light anyone could shed on this issue would

Sounds to me like someone was trying to rip that ride off doing it like that. IMHO

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was broken into. The passanger door handle is all jacked up and broken, but thats another issue. Couldn't pass up the Z71 for cheap. Any info anyone?
