i have a '71 FJ40 with dimmer switch on floor and ignition on dash. I would like to swap to newer column with dimmer on the column and ignition switch on column as well. Will a newer column from a FJ40 or possibly a Toyota pickup swap easily?
Anything is possible, but its not plug and play
If you can find a column out of a late model 60 series, or even rarer late model 40's will have a tilt column.
I know of no tilt column ever factory installed on a 40 series. North America and a few other LHD markets had a collapsible steering column 8/80+. Have never seen on installed on a RHD. Even Australia's LX 40 series had a rigid one piece column.
