help! 1963 turn signal switch

ok so my turnsignal swithch in my 63 belair basically shattered today, i need help tho, i found a 63 replacement on ecklers but the problem is my switch has this tiny ball bearing in the center that goes around the steering shaft. my bearings fell apart when i took my steering wheel off. the pictured one does not for the 63 but the 64-66 does have it, but i am confused, i don't mind paying the price for them but i need to make sure i order the right one can someone please explain what i need here? is it possible someone put a 64 column in my car in the past? if needed i can snap some pictures of my colomn tomorow and post to show what i am talking about.

The Bearing is NOT part of the switch. You can buy it separate. Other than that, I would just compare the switches, and use the new one that looks like the old one.
