62 Custom Steering Column Flange

Postby birdman31 » Sat Dec 29, 2018 6:34 pm

I am looking for the steering column tube flange for my '62 Comet Custom (2.8L 170 cu. in). The '63-'65 are all different than the '62. Not sure about the '61 or '60. The flange is the area that the blinker switch is connected to. I have tried (Several times) with what I would think are all the websites... have a few junkyards am checking on. Ebay.. Nada... etc.. etc.. Any ideas..

Are we talking about the shift collar or the last little bit of column just under the steering wheel?

Havent been able to load a pic yet... the part number is: C1DB-3511-A

There are plenty of shift collars out there... it is the piece just under the wheel where also the turn signal lever enters.

You need one of these. First is for the Std Trans, Second is for Auto.

Call them and have them take a picture to show you before you buy.

I've got the collar for the 3 on the tree.
