WTB Ignition switch rod

#1
Hey all,
I am in need an ignition switch rod for a tilt column. This the rod that connects inside the column down to the ignition switch. I have looked online through vendors websites and only Scoutparts.com seems to have one, which I will not order from them due to past experience.
Mine was cut by someone unbeknownst so I currently have no way to start my scout except jumping the starter and that kinda sucks.
Does anyone have one layout around they can part with?
Thank you

Yup! It is!
Now what length is it?
Upon research there is 4 different lengths used in GM columns from the 60s to 80s.
I am guessing people must not know there where different lengths used and just come back with GM column.
Thank you though.

I've got a measuring tape you can borrow :-)

Sorry, couldn't resist...

The last two I've gotten from the yards were removed from Scout II's, so I never worried about the length. There are several steering column rebuilders here in San Diego, you could always pull the column and take it to them for a refresh.

I have no doubt that the truck surplus place near the Coronado Bridge would have a few Scout II columns, but they are pretty proud of their stuff (at least they mark their inventory). Last time I was there they had about 500+ different columns on storage racks.
