ok guys I need some advice please,
This is a steering shaft out of a HQ -HZ, they are a "collapsible" in the case of a Major Accident, they have a PLASTIC PLUG that goes through the shaft.
Rare Spares don't seem to stock them(couldn't see it on there web site) and cart seem to find anything on e-bay ?
Any help or ideals or alternative option would be much appreciated,

As I always say
Stay Safe all

I know what your talking about but news to me that you can buy replacement pins .. do you know that somebody does make them or are you just hoping someone is ? Would be worth a try calling

Yea that’s the one with the pin. We looked for it on line someone said that they were available.
We’re at the stage of doing a make up one, but if we can get the correct part that would be awesome

Ive put a small tack on the column b4 and ground it thin as the bloke b4 me hit the column with a hammer getting the wheel off probably not the right thing to but works.

Get up that ladder grandpa your only 66.

Drill out the original holes all the way through with 1/8" drill.
Insert a plastic pin, maybe knitting needle, and melt end with soldering iron so they remain in place.
Give the column a whack to satisfy yourself lthat the pins shear and works as it should. Imagine the amount of force that your body would exert in a collision!
If your happy with the function replace with new pins and your done.

My steering column is a modified unit from a commodore. It uses commodore bottom with EH top so It looks original at the top. The collapsible shaft has an aluminium pop rivet keeping them together. The aluminium rivet will shear on impact and the inner steering shaft will slide into the outer. It may be different to yours triple D but the concept is the same.

I've had a look at my "spares" and Holden Fans suggestion to drill out and fit appropriate grade of plastic pin if something out there matches makes a lot of sense and will get the job done safely and cheaply, tack welding is def not the way to stay safe.

I had the same issue with the column in my torana. I used bits from a knitting needle after drilling out the plastic pins.
While you have the column out make sure that it does actually collapse, unlike mine where the 2 halves were stuck/rusted together, and about 30mm short of where they should have been.
When you have drilled the old pins, squirt in some grease to stop the halves sticking.
