I’ve working on a 68 cougar for my wife. I changed the seat foam and upholstery to tmi which made the seats thicker. So I decided I needed to add a tilt column. I went with a cheap eBay column but now I’m having issues finding out how to wire this thing up. Any help would be great

I have developed a kit that will help you wire a GM column to the original or an aftermarket wiring harness.
Note that it is mandatory to convert to LED bulbs when using a GM turn signal switch. The additional load of six 1157 brake light bulbs will fry the GM switch ASAP! Also, a GM switch does not provide the signal required to operate the K10 emergency signal relay on the 1967-68 Cougars, so an adapter is required.

The kit includes:
LED compatible indicator relay
6 LED bulbs
Turn signal switch connector with pins
Emergency signal adapter (not required for the latest generation sequential system controller)
Instructions with a schematic for the GM switch
