Where can I find Steering Column parts '71

I threw up a wanted ad, but also wanted to ask here. Anyone know of any resources for finding the little parts in the top of the steering column? Is my only option a rig that's being parted out?

I have a seal that is ruined, but I'm also wondering about switches, etc. if they don't work when I get it back together.

Thanks,
Todd

That's an early GM/Saginaw column. NAPA and even most McPartswanese discount stores (AZ, PB, Kragen) etc) should carry parts.

If they give you the deer in the headlights look when asking about a FSJ ...compare similar year Chev truck column parts.

Funny, the local NAPA expert (that always talks down to me when I'm in there) told me they wouldn't have any of it. It sure would be nice if they did...

My local NAPA went computer a few years ago and it only goes back to 70 something but they have the parts books.
Maybe ask the guy who supplies the column parts to NAPA and then try through the wholesaler?
An outfit like Year One that makes resto parts for Chev trucks should have parts too.
There's this place too but I've never used them.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
