The steering column in my 91 F250 has seen better days. The metal tube is actually broke in several places (see pic below) causing it to have some pretty severe side to side and up and down play in it. Rather than try to weld on this one or fix it I'd like to just replace it with a good used one. However, I'm having a hard time finding one for a manual transmission truck but I see tons for autos. Is it possible to get rid of the column shifter on the auto column and use it in a manual truck?
