Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Maybe you guys know a little about this. I do not remember disconnecting this plug. Looking under the dash and through all my stuff, I do not see the female end. So, there are two questions.

1) According to these pics, does it indicate the wires from the male connector need to be cut, then attached to the new wires, then re-pinned into the harness?

2) Anyone know precisely where the female end of the Steering Column connector is located?

I'm not sure if this helps, but here's some pictures when I rebuilt mine.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Your going to need to know what color wire is for each function and match it to the one on the steering column. IE emergency flashers, turn signal, horn etc. Hopefully that harness is using the factory colors.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Looks like your missing the channel cover that the wires run in. (clips under the column tube).

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Tim, S/T is right. I've got a 68 column in my shop. It has an 8 wire group coming out from the collar, under a cover down to a plug that's curved like one you show in your pictures. If you want me to, I can get Bonnie's help and e-mail a picture of it to you. Let me know, I'm feeling better and can get it to you this weekend if you need it.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Thanks again, you guys. The harness that came with the kit uses matching colored and labeled wires. I picture would help a ton. Since moving, it's quite possible I stashed the thing in a safe place but seeing a picture would probably remind me.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Here's a picture of it installed, my tach wire and mount covers most of it.
But you can see it's under the column.
