Horn Assembly

Helping a friend on his '68 and he recently bought a new steering wheel (not a Grant) and it came with some parts for the horn. My question concerns the order of assembly on everything in between the turnsignal switch and the new wheel. And, the brass button on the T/S switch....should it depress? Is a fairly large spring installed next? Again, it is an aftermarket wheel that came without instructions. There is a plastic horn "contact assembly" that appears to be installed after the large spring, and, this part is sandwiched up against the new hub assembly. Is this correct? Does this part move as the wheel is being turned? Does it come in contact with the T/S switch? A small, lightweight spring and plunger is also in the kit. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Horn Assembly

A little help from the pro's.....is the correct order of assembly on a '68, non-tilt column, after the turn signal switch: Cancelling cam, big spring, and the hub included with new wheel? Thanks...working on it tomorrow.

Re: Horn Assembly

Gary, here is a pic of a 69. 68's are a little different as they don't have the ignition in the column, but this may help with order of assembly. I think you are looking for #1-6

Re: Horn Assembly

thanks for the reply Spooky! I ended up using the original canceling cam which is recessed to fit the big spring, and then the new hub that came with the wheel (all in that order). A new horn relay was also needed ($19 Amazon Prime) and everything works great. Again, thank you!
