Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Thanks, Bill. I got those and they are useful. I still can't find where the plug is. I'll keep looking this weekend.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

I re-read through this thread. I looked at the pics and even all of Sport/Truck's in Image Shack. There must be a recieving end to this connector. Does this connecter go behind the gauge cluster? There is a limited amount of travel, so I don't think so. I have the guides and all the pieces you all have in your pics, I just want to know (find) where this connector belongs first.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

I did some research with the materials I have. In all the pictures and diagrams, it does not show where the connection is. Or, maybe it does and I'm missing it. Hopefully I haven't missed the answer in the posts you guys have shared. It's about to drive me bananas!!
1) It's #3
2) It's #10

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

OK. So I'm back at this, and still not getting it. Pardon my ignorance if you guys have provided the answer or solution and I missed it.

In the diagram above, it's #10. Here is another pic of mine, and the same thing in Dean's pic. Is it possible the receiving connector was tossed out with my old wiring? I just cannot find where to plug this into. Also, is it possible I have to attach each wire individually to the male ends on the plug? Thanks again guys.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Thank you, Rich. Part of being brain injured is "concrete thinking". Anyone can struggle with it, but it's a valid deficit I have. Seeing that picture, I now know I tossed it out with the old wiring. I told myself to keep that, as well as some other stuff, until I was on the road with my pickup. Having this mystery solved (thanks again!!) I can move forward with finding that plug hopefully at the parts store. Man. I just love this place!!

If not, Tim, maybe the Truck and Car Shop, again.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

Oh yeah, I forgot. That is not in stock there. It could also be a salvage yard item too, right?

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

I went back to my photos of dis-assembly. Here are two pics of what I tossed out. Am I up a creek? I've searched literally days now, on line and parts stores as well as our GM dealer.

Re: Steering Column Connector for '72 K10

You should be able to find one in the wreckers,it would be the same I believe from 68 to 72, if you find one cut the plug off with about two inches of wire attached to match up the color with yours...
