The only other diagram I would have is of the whole column.

 

Does your column have tilt wheel?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No it does not have a tilt wheel. The resign I asked is because I can't see where the cable attach to the steering compartment. Is it in the Engines compartment or inside the cab.
Also Where ca I buy a new cable am I only limited to the dealer

HiCustomer

 

As far as access to the cable, you can get to it from the bottom side of the vehicle, underneath.

 

The cable I would purchase from the dealer if it is still available.

 

Here is the only other diagram available
