Ok, how hard is it to pull the steering collumn out?  I need to get the manifolds off and trim the collar back for headers.  Its a manual setup in a 73 swinger.  Never done this before...help! any sites with pics?

there should be 3 or 4 bolts holding the column up. plus a wire connection. 4 bolts hold the base plate on the fire wall. also disconnect the coupling.

alright, it is that easy then? For some reason, looking at it, I thought it looks much worse than it probably is.

Don't forget the roll pin on the coupler.
That damn pin can be a pain in the a$$. I had to pull the whole steering box out and pull the coupling guts off of the column and then pound on it on my vise. I tried and tried for hours with it on the car to no avail. I had my machinist friend make me a pin that will come out easier the next time.

I'm really new at this, is the pin that hollow tube looking thing in the coupler? I'm trying to remove that as we speak, am I hitting the right thing?
