Eaton Steering valve column?

I have an eaton hydraulic steering valve, and the only columns I can find are 2.5" long.

1. Are there any shorter?

2. What have other folks done to attach a GM column to the orbital (if I cannot get one shorter)?

Thanks in advance.

2.5" is the shortest I've seen.
Most cut off the column and use a soid coupler or a U-joint (either has to be welded to the column shaft).

My catalog is MIA, but as I recall 2.5" was the shortest one they made. You could attempt to remove the splined shaft and weld that directly to the end of your steering shaft.
