Mine actually has a lever for the lights on the column. So if it does I can use any column with a key release lever like an s10 or any of the other ones you said?
Yes I believe so

Nice, thanks clutch. I need to install my new 2" lowering springs and lower control arms, then I'll tackle the manual swap. So many things I need to do with this car right now it's getting overwhelming haha

The specs for that W30 cam are actually quite rowdy for 72, 294/296 .472/.472, should have a nice little chop at idle and run on regular.

All I can say about this build is I hope to get back to it by spring. At least it's in a safe place and I don't need to worry about it to much
