Go to corvair center.Com/phorum and type steering box in the search engine. Might need length as a word also. I have seen the dimensions lister there a lot.
The 64 and 65 columns are different in length, but not by much

I thought I had all the right parts for changing my Lakewood to a ’64 box/shaft & column so I can use a wood steering wheel, but it appears that the shaft is too long and is a smaller diameter than the bearing inside the hub on the column. [This I found after installing everything on the car.] Clark’s sells only 1 bearing unit for ’60-64 cars, so I’m wondering if the box I have is from a ’65 or ’66.
