77 f150 steering column swap.

I have a 77 f150 automatic column shift, and I would like to swap it for a 78 tilt column. I understand the neutral safety switches are in different locations. any other differences that would prevent this swap from working?

There shouldn't be any differences unless they moved the neutral safety switch from the column to the transmission.

Thank you for the info. I know the 77 has the neutral safety switch in the column. 78/79 have the switch on the transmission. If this is the only difference between the columns I can make it work.
