Hi I have a 1972 caddy deville sedan with a 472 7.7, a couple days ago my car wouldnt start so I replaced the starter, but still didnt start come to find out there a connector part at the bottom of the steering column by the break pedal, which broke off, it has a ring around the steering shaft to hold in place, but no one seems to know the name of the piece, can someone help or direct me to a diagram that would allow me to locate the part nd name cause I cant find one?

If it was the neutral safety the shift linkage would have to move it some how so it could work properly.
