How the $%$%#$ do I get this tilt column apart......

A customer brought over a tilt column from a 74 chevy van to be installed into his 55 Chev truck. No key on the column.

Already had the top part off. I am looking at the blinker switch... OK, remove the 3 screws and.............

The blinker switch barely comes out of the housing. The housing on this column is steel, not cast as on the other columns I have worked on.....

Now the switch is out, and there are no screws to remove to take the housing (cover) off. How in the heck do I get this apart.

It needs new bearings, and I probaby need to shorten it.....
