Question Steering Column Questions Please Help

I have a 97 F-250 with tilit wheel and no air bag. It is also a standard.
What other steering columns will work. Thought about trying to find one from an automatic and just take the stick off and use the plastic off of mine. Would this hurt anything. Just missing the key lock but I'm not worried about that.
Thanks
Craig

Any 92-96 F150 column should work. If you find one with an air bag, you can remove the air bag wheel and clockspring and replace it with the cruise brushes and your wheel. There may even be a casting in place for the manual key release (I remember there was when I column swapped my ranger I had.)

i know that there are 2 different electrical plug-ins on them, some steering columns have a gray plugin and some have a black one. im not sure if you can switch wiring over but i did observe that when i put bearings in my steering column.

I switched out my 97 2wd auto steering column with one out of a bronco IIRC. and it had a different electrical plug, but the only difference on the plug was an extra wide "guide ear" on the outside of the male end. I filled it down a bit and it plugged right up.
