    I'm looking for a lower steering column cover for my K10 and have been unable to find one.
    I've checked LMC, Chevy Duty, and a few other places. I'd prefer to find one new so Inow it will work rather than go trudging through the junk yard and finding more junk....

    Any ideas?

    half of my steering column is from an 89 GTA, fit right in with tilt, cruise, and everything...just about any chevy steering column will work there IIRC

    I have checked JCWhitney and came up empty there also.

    It's a 79 K10 with the TH-350.
    I'll try and describe it the best I can....It's the lower column cover that has the little "arm" screwed it it near the dash. The shift indicator wire gets hung on that arm. The cover I need is supposed to mte with the shift arm so that when you rotate it, the cover rotates and puls the shift indicator.

    To get this cover off, you have to remove the steering wheel, turn signal switch, the igniton switch and associated stuff, and the shift arm assembly.
    It's not the little cover that bolts to the dash..it slide over the steering column itself.

    The plastic cover that goes on the column, or the metal cover that screws to the dash itself, underneath the column.
    If the latter, I always see those on ebay...

    It's the plastic collar that goes over the column itself.

    The little plastic cover that slides up into the column.. should be 73-80 and probably even more, but that is when the columns changed with the cruise and such. I have a couple part columns laying around I can take that part from if you want it. PM me if you want it. I always have lots of extra parts :D
