Hey guys, I’m in the process of putting a 440/NP445 into my ‘83 318/727 RamCharger. Today’s project was swapping out the pedals. The brake pedal went in ok, but the clutch pedal was interfering with the column mounted ignition switch. I think this column is out of a ‘90 D/W150 (Tilt, W/W controls, cruise).
I’m probably going to have to find a different column with the ignition switch in a different location, which wouldn’t be that big of a deal because I hate all the useless controls on it that don’t work in my truck.
Other than the shifter lever, are the auto and manual columns different?Anyone with a linkage style manual trans want to show their ignition switch?
Thanks.
