Well, I though that I would have had at least ONE reponse )
Anyway, I have been scouring the internet and only found one refernce to a guy on Stangfix who supposedly did the swap but it appears the thread is no longer there. I do not have the funds to buy a 70 tilt and I do not mind a little fabrication.
Here is what I think I know: The 71 mounts and wiring are different, the column is longer. I am not worried about the wiring or the mounts. I already have a 70 tilt rag joint. So, here are my thoughts:
COA 1: Cut down the 71 column to 70 length, modifiy mounts/column tube to mount the assembly
COA 2: Remove the tilt shaft out of the 71 column. Cut the top of both columns off (just below the head) and weld the tilt head onto the 70 column tube. Shorten the tilt shaft as needed.
Any thoughts on the two COAs?
