Default Anyone here ever change sterring colum seal

Just recieved my new seal from Year one and the seal itself is a complete unit witch matched my bracket on the floorboard. My problem is that the center hole measures 1 3/4 but my sterring wheel hub in witch this covers up is 2 1/4. AM i supposed to split the seal or trim it to fit or whats the story here??? Looks nothing like factory seal i removed on my 67 GTO. i was thinking its a simple bolt on unit but maybe not???

They stamp them out to fit all A body's so it may not look like the original one. If you pull the column you can just slide it over the end. Or just slit it and put it on and use some sealer and glue it to the plate that the column is clamped to.
