Can't get my column out

I have been trying to get my steering column out of my 56 Chev sedan and I have unbolted everything I can see fas far as the manual description and Pics show.

Anyone tell me if there is a hidden lock ring or bolt I cannot see down near the box?

Most are held to the box thru the ragjoint with a pinchbolt going thru a clamp. Once you take the pinchbolt out, the clamp is still tight, and the rust doesnt help any. I usually pry the clamp open slightly, then can manage to get the joint free with a little persuasion.

Don't know if that helped or not....

On the '56 the steering shaft is solid from the wheel to inside the steering box.
