Directionial signal harness

How big a job is it to install a new signal harness on a 68 with automatic floor shift? Brought the car to a guy and he said he's had to lower the steering column, and take out the dash and unhook the speedo???? Also said he had to cut some wires on the harness bought from a Camaro supplier.
Starting to have my doubts!

Re: Directionial signal harness

I would think:
1. Unplug the column harnees,
2. Tie a string to the column harness,
3. Remove horn button/center piece and remove steering wheel - mark both the wheel and shaft for alignment, if not done yet,
3. Unscrew turn signal handle,
4. Unbolt turn signal switch,
5. Carefully pull up switch until removed from column - untie string,
6. Tie string to new harness,
7. Gently pull harness through column using string to guide harness through column,
8. Reverse order of Steps 1-4.

I have done this procedure for a combo switch and a VATS tumbler.
I could be hosed on the procedure.

Re: Directionial signal harness

it sounds like he doesn't really know what he's doing to be honest, it's not that hard of a job. Could have the column out of the car in 15 mins.

Re: Directionial signal harness

Gotta watch out if it's an 8 pin or 9 pin harness. When I replaced mine in my 67 machine I had to add on an adapter from 9 pin to 8 pin.

Column does not have to come out, I remember lowering mine a bit for clearance.
