Where did this bolt come from?

I was doing some work on the turn signal switch and as I lowered the collar that attaches to the upper column that houses the switch I noticed this bolt floating in the collar. Any idea what it is or where it goes? Thanks.

Hi! That bolt attach the steering column flange to the column tube. There must be 2 of them with nuts

Ross,
It is shown in the lower diagram on this link. Part number #3651. If you pull the horn button, there should be a loose nut inside there too.

Good luck,

Well I see where it came from, it attaches the turn signal housing to the upper column. Is there a special trick to get the 4 sided bolt to lock in the slot of the upper column?

The bolt head drops into a slot of the same size. That's what keeps it from turning when you tighten the nut

What everyone has said is correct. I can tell you when I was reassembling mine it really looked like there was no way it would "hook" in and hold, but it does....

66 Convertible. Full restoration in the works

I can see one if the bolts in the slot, looks like the other one (top I guess) is the one that fell out.
