Purchased a Grant LeMans wheel for my 68 camaro.Instructions say to install plastic horn contact assembly onto hub assembly in grant installation kit.This mounts onto steering shaft there's a spring that goes between horn contact & washer that holds upper bearing.When I mount hub&horn contact on shaft it will not compress spring enough to remain on shaft & adapter for wheel is not fully mounted.Hope I made this understandable anyone else had this problem?I'm going to contact Grant tommorow.Thanks.

Not sure what the problem is. Will take a stab at the answer you will receive from Grant.Sometime in the past 36 years the column was removed and not re-installed correctly. Do a search here on installation of steering wheels. Some good info can be found.

There are two springs that are supposed to be inside the plastic tube not one. Seems like you are missing one. You can try usuing the sring from a ball point pen. Just add it on top of the one thats already in there.
