I just completed a big project. I'm documenting how to remove, disassemble, rebuild and finally reinstall a 1963 C10 manual transmission steering column. The 1964 - 1966 columns are identical except for the turn signal mechanism.
My 1963 column needed a rebuild so I thought I'd add some pages to my website.
I'm not an expert, so if you see anything that needs editing or a better explanation, please let me know.

I'm most proud of the 1963 Chevy C10 Steering Column Rebuild page. Nice clean parts always make for better pictures.
The reinstallation DIY hasn't happened yet, so be patient.

Here are the links to the web pages.

Thanks for posting, looks like a lot of great information. I'll be rebuilding my '63s column as well here in the near future, and it'll be nice to have something to go by. If memory serves, there isn't much, if anything, on steering column in the factory service manual.

If your column is in decent shape then the rebuild is not difficult.
One thing to consider is to upgrade the lower end of the shaft to a safer telescoping shaft.
I highly recommend it and especially if you plan to install power steering.
This LINK shows the details of what I did on my 1965 truck. I have all the pieces to do the same with my 63 steering and hope to complete it by December.

Good to know. I'm not currently planning to install power steering, but the telescoping column sounds like a really good idea. Thanks again!

The telescoping shaft modification can be done on any shaft, factory or upgraded to PS.
