Both are Fiero column? What years?
Does both look the same where that joint attaches?
Intermediate shaft only goes one way. Big notch on column shaft or rack to accept the pinch bolt should by obvious. Rack's "notch" is big. You must Remove the pinch bolt on intermediate shaft.
Likely expand the joint where bolt goes thru it to allow the parts to mate. Drive a screwdriver a little in between the bolt ears.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
