Installing a GN Steering Column

I have a 84 GN steering column and I'm pretty sure I can fabricate the brackets in my 66 Chev pick-up for it to fit in. My questions are will the wiring be a problem? I do have the 84 shop manuals for all Buick's of that year & I'm using the 200r trans out of the same car so the neutral switch will work. Can I attach a rack to it? I figured that I will have to buy some aftermarket universal joints for this to work. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I do not see any issues with doing that..Yes the universals will need to be worked with..the wiring is not a big issue if you have the manuals..

Borgeson will probably have the universals..as well as Jegs or Summit actually most rod shops have them..Hooking up the rack is just a matter of having the correct joint..
