Default Steering Column Information

This may be old news/information to most of you but I did a little comparison between steering columns yesterday. Here are the players:

The upper column with the wheel is stock M715, the black one is a Super Wagoneer tilt column and the blue one is from a 69 Commando. All are small diameter 40 spline shafts (74 and up Jeep shafts are 36 spline) and all use the Grant adapter #4403.

Here is how they measure up.

Length of tube to the collar under the steering wheel (the collar comes off the M715 tube but is made into the others).

+ M715 = 28", Super = 21 1/8", Commando = 21 1/2"

M715 column sticks out from the dash 5" to collar (can't say about the others) and the M715 column floor mount to collar is 22 5/8" & 23 3/8" (the mounting plate is tack welded on the tube at an angle. Both of the other columns have a moveable mount.

The internal parts of the steering columns are basicly the same with the exception that the Commando and Super columns have internal parts for turn signals and their cancelation function.

Steering column shafts are similar with the M715 being longer than the others and the Commando shaft has the rag joint made onto the shaft.

Here is the M715 and Commando shafts:
