Maybe I am confused ....is this the cruise control components?
If it is, then what I was asking is. will my CC harness plug right into my 1980 control harness. Sorry I bought a complete column from an 86 sight unseen. Just wondering if it would be minimal mods to make it work.
I probably won't be able to explain any better Gary, but I can try. The truck's steering wheel and column was destroyed, blinker, key switch, and wheel are all tore up. I bought a bunch of parts off an 1986 f250, I haven't looked at the harness on either assembly yet. I was asking if the harness would need any modifications on my part or will the column harness plug directly into the existing truck harness.
Sorry if it is still confusing, I guess I will find out for myself when I tear into that truck in the future.
If the speed control components are already on the '80, then the harness is already there and the column should plug right in.
1980 trucks are a special breed since the early ones are wired a bit differently than the later ones and the rest of the Bullnose era. But if yours has speed control it probably is of the later variety and you should be good.

Thanks Gary, I think it's an 80 perhaps it is an 81? I really should check on all this before I ask you guys questions.
I skimmed over the parts this morning that I bought months ago and noticed some other differences with my door locks. The 80 doors don't have locking knobs on the top of the sill and the 86 does, but I don't think that will be a problem
I will fill in my sig line when I know what I have. I haven't done any real research on either truck yet. The 80 I bought off CL last year and drove it out to a friends shop and parked it, then bought doors, fenders, seat, column, and grill from another CL transaction several months ago. Thanks for the site and your help.
