Tri5 vs. AD steering wheel

Do tri-5 have the same mounting method as AD trucks?

I boogered up my steering shaft threads. Anyhow, since I’m going the power steering route, I’m looking at my options.

I can find Tri-Five steering shafts, so I’m just thinking it may be an option.

The mounting for the steering wheel is the same. There are variations in length. The 57 up is shorter then the 55-56. as they have the dish out steering wheel.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

All I’m really after is the shaft. I’ll use it in my truck along with a column saver bushing. Thanks.

Depends on what you mean by "mounting method". I assume you mean the steering wheel? (your title says wheel but you ask about shaft) Or do you mean the shaft? The steering wheel splines are the same from way early to way late Chevys.

I guess I should’ve asked, “Is the splined end and nut the same?” That’s all I really wanted to know. For my purpose it doesn’t really matter if it’s a car, truck, whatever. I need a 3/4 shaft with a splined end and a 1/2” nut, that’s it.

Sorry for being vague, I found out what I needed to know anyhow.

too bad you are not closer, I have a shaft that someone cut off where it goes into the box leaning up against the wall in the shop! LOL. You should be able to find one close to you I would imagine, should be a lot of them that will work for you!

Thanks for the offer, if you were about 1800 miles closer it would work, I suppose. LOL.

I’m trying to figure out my options. I can find find the Tri-Five stuff all over the place, new and used parts. For whatever reason, I’m having trouble finding the truck stuff.

The crowd I run with are more into motorcycles and lifted trucks. I’m the only one that likes old trucks. Maybe I need new friends I guess.
