I will be pulling the column out of my 65 coupe for dash and column restoration. According to Dobbs and Farr in "How to Restore Your Mustang" removal is as follows:

Disconect horn and turn signal wiring under dash

Unscrew and remove turnsignal shaft

Remove bracket that attaches column to dash and pull the column out

Thats it? I suppose re-installation is just as easy, but in reverse?

Seems too easy.

Thanks.

You have to remove the steering wheel and horn too. You will need to buy or rent a steering wheel puller to do that job.. very simple job to do.. you may have to give the tube a little tug..sometimes the rubber seal a the bottom can give you a little problem.

Yes it is that easy to remove the column once you removed the steering wheel.
