Thanks to all the fellow oletruckers that responded to my two questions.
Here is the summary for those that might find themselves with the same
questions:

1. The slot on the steering column is for the linkage on the 3 speed column
mounted shifter.
I guess my truck was originally a 3 speed, I found the complete linkage and
shifter on the bed when I got the truck 3 years ago. I'd still would like to
keep it a 4 speed on the floor.

2. Wiring harness from Chevy Duty is a good buy, this seems to be the
general consensus, however a few out there got wiring harnesses from newer
trucks at bone yards and that seems to be ok, but some hole needs to be cut
on the firewall. I think I will order the Chevy Duty harness and make some
mods to it to include items such as a stereo, third brake light and electric
wiper motors.


Thanks again,

Antonio

Antonio, I have one of those 99 dollar harnesses. Fir the money, you can't
beat
it. I bought one for my 50, but might use it in my 51 dump truck and make my
own
for the 50 . It would cost way more bucks to buy one like I am going to
make.
More bucks than I have. The 49 Chevy had a fuse block. The wires are a
little
thing. But it would be adequate.
