    My 1965 Skylark tilt column needs a rebuild. The turn indicators don't work right unless it is not tilted. I have tried to fix it, but it is time to have a professional do the repair. Who does great work on our tilt columns?

    Brian just did a tilt column for my GSX. Great workmanship !! 100% recommended

    They're not that hard to do.

    Yes he rebuilds them completely. Here is the one he did for me. I bought this one from him as he was parting out a rough GS and I needed one for my GSX.

    It looks nice. I will be looking for one for an early 70 4 speed car should anyone have one.

    funny but a 65 column is a whole different animal than a later Saginaw.. I can do a 68-96 tilt/non-tilt/stalk dim column with my eyes closed, but I was sure glad I had the shop manual handy when I did my 65. You also have to be super careful of the turn signal switch - it's old, very brittle and just about all of the car's body power runs through it. A very strange design. And there are two different signal switch designs, (Guide and Boyne) and you wont know which one you have until you get the column apart. I'd check on the availability and lead times of both before you pull the column..with luck it's just a connectivity issue.

    Brian does excellent work - as mentioned above. Give him a call and discuss your needs!

    I contacted Brian and he does not rebuilt columns as old as mine. So still looking.

    They're not super difficult, maybe even easier than a later column but I found the service manual invaluable 26904425_2208561849157786_595457005824887394_n.jpg
