C3 Corvette Telescopic steering doesn't lock

Hi I just purchased a 1976 C3 Corvette Stingray and I noticed that the steering column slides up and down and doesn't seem to lock in place. Can anyone offer any pictures/instructions on how to fix this problem?

There is a tension adjustment nut for the lock behind the horn button. After you remove the horn button, remove the two small phillips screws that lock the larger adjustment wheeel in place( this is star shaped and has a phillips slot in the center) tighten down until the telescoping lock/ unlock has enought tension to hold, then replace small locking screws & you should be set. you may have to trial & error a couple of times to get the feel you want.
