Does it move at all??? If so then the star bolt that goes in the center hole is the brake so to speak. the lever that turns back and forth on the column has 2 small screws that attach to the lever. tighten the center bolt until the wheel is secure, then set the tightening lever to the tight position and put the 2 screws in place. they will fit in between the star or teeth on the bolt and attach to the tightening lever.

Fuses are located in the junction box below the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. The turn signal flasher and hazard warning flasher also plug into the fuse block. Each fuse receptacle is marked as to the circuit it protects and the correct amperage of the fuse. In line fuses are also used. Refer to the Fuse Chart at the end of the information for their location. The fuse block on some models is a swing-down unit located in the underside of the instrument panel adjacent to the steering column. Access to the fuse block on some models is gained through the glove box opening. The Convenience Center on some models is a swing-down unit located on the underside of the instrument panel. The swing-down feature provides central location and easy access to buzzers, relays and flasher units. All units are serviced by plug-in replacement. Location of Convenience Center on specific models may vary.
Remove the steering wheel,which may require a puller. Mark the wheel in relation to the steering shaft before removing.

The power steering pump on a 1980 corvette is located directly under the alternator. I have found it easiest to reach between the alternator belt and unscrew the cap, then use a long stemmed funnel to fill it. If you shine a flashlight down into the spout, you'l avopid overfilling.
