Sounds good. Let me know if you need anything else. I can dig into the parts catalog for some diagrams to help too. Good luck!

Thanks for the welcome and the info. I have a column shift, and have been going by the shop manual. Just took a quick look at the article you shared and will study that closer. Almost seems like there might be some mechanics trick to help remove it.

Welcome to the forum.  I believe the 70-71 column is similar to the 70-73 Mustang column, but it is different from the '72+ Torinos.  That said, I think John is on the right path about the T-bolt nuts.   Is your car a floor shift or a column shift?
These diagrams might help:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This article may be helpful too, it's got lots of great pics:

not sure but if it's like the 72-79 columns i think here's a hole for a socket to fit in to remove a bolt for the shift tube IIRC but i believe the upper casting comes off with just the 2 nuts/t-bolts...

 maybe someone else here is more familiar with the 70-71's

Hi All, Glad to be on board. I have a 71 Torino GT convertible 351C 4v auto. Looking for advice on removing the flange casting from the steering column. Lock cylinder is out, turn signal switch out, nuts off tbolts and snap ring off, but flange will not budge. Thanks!
