OK, so I feel the fool for asking this but here we go. I've been mucking about in my mostly torn down GT6 and as I'm rebuilding the wiring harness I decided I needed to remove the column and such in order to more easily work. I've done this before (in a spitfire and tr3), yet for 2 months ive been stuck. I can't get the the thing removed. Mind you I haven't worked on it everyday but it is reaching a silly point. Everything on the inside is disconnected. The only attachment left is the knuckle joint which then goes into the box. I've loosened the clamping bolts and have managed to slide it up about 3/4 of an inch but no more. I know I'm going to replace most of the setup in the end but surely I shouldn't need to cut it out? Mention this because the steering was very loose prior to this ( 5-6 rotations to turn the wheels a degree or so). Not a big deal since it was just a rolling chasis in my garage at the moment. I assume perhaps something has become gnarled and won't release now? Or I'm missing something very obvious. Thanks for any input.
