Is there an adjustment on the column switch mount by chance?  Or are the holes round on the switch?  Not slotted.

Let me look at the FSM then.  Sounds like areal weird setup.  Must have been designed by an Alkie Engineer.

Best I could do Jim.  It's not the floor shift, it's the tilt column.  NOW I have something to look forward too.  Big Red has tilt!  OH BOY!  No pictures.  Hope you can read it

   Yeah, according to that it does not make any mention of an adjustment. I guess I will just have to take it apart and fool with it a bit. It wont be a lost cause as the horn contacts have a part missing there somewhere too. I dont recall what it was as it was 7-8 years ago when I last had it apart for the previous owner.
   Thanks for the help though, at least im not going into this blind and I have a good general idea of where im headed. Great info with the FSM and much appreciated. Got a full plate for the next week or so but will update with detailed pics when I tackle it.

Don't know if this will help, because my experience with this type of switch is on the early model Corvair.  On those,  you install the wire, and  then you adjust the switch up and down on the column by sliding it with the mounting screws slightly loose.  You have to have someone looking at the taillights to tell  you when they are both off.  Then you lock the switch down with the screws, and try the handle at the top of the column to see if the switch works properly.  There is a mechanism at the top of the column that activated the switch and also cancels the directionals by moving the cable.  It is a convoluted system to set, but with patience, it can be done.  You might also still have a problem with all the contacts inside of the switch not making proper contact, even though you cleaned and lubed them.
