    the only problem ive come across is the wiring for the ignition switch, the switch on the tilt columns is turn 180*.

    just a FYI, 83 was the last year for the floor dimmer switch. 84 was the last year for the wipers on the dash. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I believe 83 was the last year for the wipers on the dash. My 84 has it on the column... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
