Tim
The actual column is early mgb, the bottom end of which is clamped into a universal joint which in turn clamps on to a modified shaft from an mgb steering rack.
Hope this helps
Best Wishes DavidA

Sounds just like a Hawk set up. As Gerry once worked for BRA he would probably advise and even supply the parts.

There were several for sale on eBay when I was looking recently.
There are three different top splines, you probably want a pre-1969 one.
Although bosses are available to use the slightly later ones too.

Can't guarantee this is right, but it looks like the right one.
