I would press that worm off the '36 shaft. There were some previous posts on pressing worm gears on or off shafts, if you do a search you should find them. One post by NealinCa and another by me.
You could use your '37 steering wheel if you find a '37 horn button, light switch rod. Or use your '35 steering wheel & horn button, light switch rod by repairing cracks in wheel with PC-7, JB Weld, or some other good quality two part epoxies.
