Your trying to go 5-bolt Grant to ??? 69-up GM spline?? 6-bolt pattern?? 8-bolt pattern??? I went and looked at KMJ, they don't say in the ad what it is, just that it fits 69-up common wheel adapters. Picture in ad looks like it already has a 9-bolt adapter already on the column, that needs to be pulled and a Grant adapter added?? Thats how it looks to me.

Looks to just be a copy of the late 60's early 70's Chevy van column??

The info I saw on this column said that any steering wheel adapter 69 and up for gm would fit. Cant you get a adapter on e bay?

That's the problem . I have searched e bay and even google searched and not come up with anything other than adapters to fit a 5 bolt wheel to a golf cart . I have steering going through the floor between my knees on my T-bucket now and want to go through the firewall and move the steering box to the frame between the rad and engine. My Grant wheel is leather and matches the color of my interior so I would like to keep it .

I believe you need two adapters, one for GM spline to grant 3-bolt pattern, then a 3 bolt to 5-bolt spacers for a Grant Signature wheel(the only ones that are 5-bolt) Should be easy to get from Grant, just found a bunch on Ebay.

But does it do the same thing ? The one I have now is sort of cone shaped because it is on a straight hod rod column with a keyed shaft . Must be real old .

I did after much research find ONE only.

I put in a sniper bid on it and hope to get it . Sure would like to keep the wheel I have since it has been upholstered to match my interior . Even found a used horn button for my wheel in case I can't get the one I have to work . Hate to think how many hours I have put into this one little online search . Good thing I'm retired . LOL

Can't load pics here, there to big. Tried sending you email and don't know why your not getting it.

The one I have does the same thing as that one pictured. Mines about 3" tall. That one in the picture looks shorter and has a machined adapter where mine has a stamped steal and plastic cover around it. To be honest with you I like the one you have pictured better than the one I have. I would go with that one if I were you.
