I tore into my steering column a little further tonight. The lever that locks it into position is mangled and it no longer holds the up position. That is, you have to push the tilt lever to tilt it up, but it will pull to the lower position by simply pulling down on the wheel. The lever I have pictured is on the bottom side of the column and pivots against a spring to release and tilt. Spring pressure engages the lever to hold position. Where can I get one? They obviously make them, since rebuilt tilt columns are available for the low, low price of $1100.
