Hello folks, I have a '80 and I just started working on bringing her back, I am in need of a tilt wheel release lever and everywhere I look it is discontinued. The GM part number is 473083 and it is only for 79-82. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I also have a set of side pipes if anyone is interested, they are patriot aftermarkets, I decided to go with a custom dual exhaust that fits under the body as the roads in NY are not ideal for lower sidepipes. Thanks!

Any pics of the side pipes? Also where did you get your tilt wheel release lever, and I need a turn signal lever also? Thanks.

Hi, I sold the side pipes, they are now on a 76 C3. I found the tilt lever at The Corvette Shop The Corvette Shop , great guy he pulled one off an old column.

Question: Does the old one just screw out, or do you have to use any special process to remove the old tilt release lever and replace it?

Thanks
