Hey all. I've been debating posting this for a couple of months (seriously) but just about anything I've tried hasn't worked, except for one last-ditch effort coming in the mail (more on this later)... '72 Coronet. I was working on swapping my column shift steering column out for a floor shift column. Got it in, managed to index the column/wheel correctly so it's facing the right way up when the wheels are pointed straight ahead, etc. I absolutely could not get the tabs of the metal coupler seal cover to crimp properly, but nevermind, I've got that "baling wire" clip thing that fits over the cover and snaps into the holes of the pin in the coupler "box." (WHAT I THOUGHT) was the last step! Tapping in the pin to connect the coupler/column to the power steering input. (WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED) I suppose I was using a punch one size too small in pushing the pin in, but it managed to get the entire pin in. I thought I'd be able to wiggle the punch out with my fingers, and pull it out of the pin. But no, the punch snapped- inside the pin. Just about flush with the pin and coupler itself. So, in short, now that baling wire thing that snaps over the rubber and steel cover on the back of the coupler doesn't have two holes to snap into. So I've got a solid, totally-in-there steering coupler pin with an inch or so of a punch squeezed tight inside. I have tried to hammer the punch through the bottom. I have tried to hammer it all back up from bottom through the top. I have tried drilling it all out (I have a set of cobalt steel drill bits coming in the mail- I'm hoping this will chew through the hardened steel of the punch inside). But so far, my entire build has stalled, because I don't have any clue how I can get this pin-with-a-punch that's stuck in the coupler box out. It's super tight in there. And short of grabbing a cut-off wheel and sawing through the coupler box itself, if these drill bits don't work on grinding that snapped-off-punch out... I'm at a loss of what to do. Again, this has been such a stupid mistake that I've been worried of getting flamed for this for the past couple of months asking you guys on here. Trust me, any form of "idiot" you'd call me, I've already called myself over this. I can't believe I did something so catastrophically dumb. But it's time to face the music, welcome any abuse you may throw toward me, and hopefully get some advice on what the hell I can do with this. Side note, I do have a couple more steering coupler pins, so I can destroy the one currently in there, no worries.
