Re: left turn signal not turning off

Your left canceling spring is either broken or missing. They sell them at most parts stores in the help isle. I think Dorman makes them,very inexpensive. I had the exact same problem a couple years ago,works great now. You just have to pull your wheel to get at it.

Just be careful as sometimes the plastic gets brittle and can break - if you are going to pull it I would get a replacement canceling cam before you just go to replace the spring. There are a few posts on the site with some decent instruction detail.

Re: left turn signal not turning off

Yeah an ounce of prevention. it is a PITA to pull the wheel, and to have to do it days, or months after you replace one side when the other one fails is a major kick. So if you open it up once replace the full cam and be done for another 40 years - or so you hope.

Re: left turn signal not turning off

Have u had the wheel alignment done?
This is the most common cause as most wheel alignment guys these days dont know to LOCK the steering wheel straight forward THEN set up toe in etc..
They then remove the steering wheel, dont notice the splines only fit on 1 way, and wind he nut back down hard..
Result indicators dont return correctly.
Check out older threads on the subject.

The lock plate on a 69 only allows a limited movement for the horn connection Steps. The wheel can't be turned more than a few splines if the lock plate is there. Take one apart and look.

Re: left turn signal not turning off

Mine, before I brought it, and the old HQ/ HK/HT GM holdens which are very similar setup many parts`interchange...common to have the center shaft dot off center and he teerig wheel straight, and indicators not work as they should.
As to "taking steering apart" why not check out my orginal threads/ posts 10yrs or so ago...when my camaro was`stolen and a`sledge hammer was used to smash the steering wheel, and damage from steering wheel right down into and including the steering box.
And check out other threads on wheel alignments and indicator issues
