Hi well I'm back, after being laid up with a broke leg for the pass four months. I keep breaking bones that are hard to heal, one in my right hand (back in the 90's), outer bone of my left foot (back in the 2000's) and now the right leg (playing Racquetball).
So I figured this would be a good time to work on Blackie, Turn Signal not canceling. Now I've opened up another can of worms. So first off I found out why my horn wasn't working, somebody had cut the horn wire, And while reading on this forum I can see that the Signal Cancel comes up every so often. So there's a lot of good information on this web site.
I figured I would put my talent to work and make a Break out view as I go. plus it helps me remember how to put things back together. So if you ever need it I hope you find it useful.
Wes

Ouch on the first photo and very nice and much better and more detail than what the factory provided on the second. Thanks.

Thanks Howard, first time using the program GIMP, it's a little difficult, but I guess not too bad for my first time. I did notice later that I put the three black spacers in the wrong position so here is the corrected version.

Hi nice steering wheel shot!
I'm in the midst of trying to get a different project 's horn working and it looks very similar with a horn ring,in a 50 desoto ( Chrysler )
There's no pics I can find ,
So the point is to supply ground by pressing on the horn ring
Many you can help me the wire comes up through the colomb
The wheel is held on by a nut and there's a cup that's called a ground cup
The wire is held in place by a button on the end but the thing behind it ,is that an insulator ? Or does the wire have continuity with ground cup?
The spring sits in the cup so it's " hot"
Now it gets tricky
There's a spring retainer ring ,so it's hot
It bolts on to the 3 legged ring but I see insulators noted so I guess this isn't " hot" and it supports the hon ring ,looks like the screws go through the 3leg ring without touching (grounding) it to connect to the horn ring
so where's the circuit made when the ring presses?
