Yes all the GM switches were either tilt or non tilt.

I will try to post a picture.

John

Here you Go. I need the detent spring drawn in red and the tilt return spring drawn in green.



If Russ can help, I could either send a check or he could send me a PayPal invoice.

Thanks again.

But anyway, enough of that, I got something done on the truck two days in a row now!

Good to see the truck back in your sights!

Saw my first T-bucket at a car show in Marquette Michigan when I was 16. Vowed then and there that some day I would own one. Finally when I went on disability in 2009 I actually had the time to aquire a rough copy and spent the winter making it drivable and the next few winters refining it to what I am finally happy with it. Thanks to those two old timers for creating something that lives on. Still, most people here in WV have never seen one, and ask many questions.

MARTINSR I thought I was done out in the garage but I was wrong. Nick is adding nitrous or a turbo or something to his computer and I needed to modify a bracket.

I have to say again, if you are doing fab work of any kind, these punches should be required by law. I just modified this bracket, an extremely precise piece, zero room for error. I punched four 5/32" holes with ZERO room for error. Very very little room to do it, wham bam thank you maam punched the four holes walked back into the house and slipped the bracket over the four studs without so much a whimper. Nothing to clean up around the holes, no wandering of the drill, nothing, just punch, punch, punch, punch, done.

MARTINSR I know you guys aren't going to believe this, but I worked on my truck tonight! WHOOO HOOOO! Got in my five minutes in, hopefully I can keep it up. But I got the patch panel that I made about a year ago trimmed to fit. I then spent a little time getting the door fit better.

Something got done, I am feel good about it.
