Question 67 Steering wheel re-assembly

I'm reassembling everything after installing gauges in the dash and I'm having trouble with the horn/steering wheel cap. I took pictures of each step of the disassembly to avoid this but I'm stymied. In picture 1 I've pried off the chrome cap and when I did it the spring fell out. I did not see where it came from. I assume it was under that cap as I hadn't removed anything else at that point. The next 2 pics are each of the following stages of disassembly. For the life of me I can't figure out how/where that spring goes under the cap. Everything worked prior to taking it apart but not now. If I leave the spring out the cap is loose. If I try to insert the spring between the cap and that brown plate it won't snap closed. In both cases the horn sounds, so I had to pull that ground wire and wrap it with tape. I've researched and found various diagrams of steering assemblies but nothing exactly like mine (maybe not original). Any idea where/how this spring is installed?

Re: 67 Steering wheel re-assembly

Take a look at this link. Looks like the small end of the spring just fits over the steering shaft threads:

Re: 67 Steering wheel re-assembly

Thanks for the link Gary, that looks nearly identical to mine. I did try putting the spring in that position but there isn't enough bolt protruding from the nut to get the spring around. I used a flat blade screwdriver to hold the spring in that position while pushing the cap down, but it didn't take. After seeing the pics in your link I'll just be a little more persistent/patient and give it another go. Maybe a little piece of tape to hold it in place... Anywho, thanks!

Tape worked for me. About one inch of tape holding the last coil of the spring to the inside of the cap.
