Adding lever extentions these rub on the steering wheel if pointing up if down they are almost to far away.

Bob, you could fit a crescent wrench across the lever, just outboard of the quadrant, with the jaws at right angles to the column. Then fit a second crescent wrench across the jaws over the lever, and bend the rod that way. This will take any load off the quadrant and get the bend outboard of the column. There should be no distortion to cause binding in the column.

Hope this helps.
Allan from down under.
