When curiosity and opportunity meet in a dark alley
Having time to work on things and a clean space upon which to work are usually mutually exclusive...but this time everything worked out.
The only negative thing that happened is that I lost the tension spring for the turn signal arm in the trash can next to my work bench. I was cleaning the arm and heard the spring pop off and then ricochet off the side of the bag. 99% of the time, there's nothing in this trash can, but it's full of leaves, Mazda brake parts, rust and dirt. Should be fun to sift through in the next day or two.
All told, the column is in pretty good shape. I just need to dig out my bin of spare wire to replace the two fried/melted wires and send the ignition switch off for a rebuild.
Then the fun of putting it back together begins.
