Turn Signal Harness in the Steering Column,..R&R

I need to replace this part on a non-tilt standard steering column on one of my 69's:


I have the top end of of the column disassembled and I'm down to this last part. I've removed the three screws that hold the upper plastic base of the harness. The column is out of the car.

Are there any tricks or gotchas?,..or is it pretty straight forward? I'm thinking I simply slide the wires and connector up through the collars of the upper column,..but nothing is simple in my life.

Advice welcome and thanks.

My 69 column has a black plastic cover that the wires sit in. Do you have that piece? I believe it is to help keep the wires from getting rubbed through but I do know that its much easier to slide the harness through the column with the cover over the wires.

I've never done it, but have read to tie a string to the bottom connector of the old harness. Pull the old through from the top and the string follows. Use the string to pull the new harness back through. Sounds good to me

Easy job, just remember how the horn goes back together.
