1942 "160" HORN RING REMOVAL

How do you remove the horn ring? Most of the time you just push in and turn and it will come off. I am doing that an no luck. There must be another way. Can't find any info on how to do it. Can you give me any advice?

p.s. I may have to remove the steering wheel also as I want to get to the directional signal mechanism.

I believe but will not swear to it that the 42 models all used a similar wheel to the 46-7 models. If that is so look at the rear of the wheel and see if there are 3 small holes in the plastic hub for screws that thread into the horn ring from the back side. If you find some then removing them will let the ring come free. The emblem parts in those wheels are held by a chrome retaining piece with tabs that fit into slots in the horn ring and then bent over.

If you have the deluxe or banjo type wheel with a metal hub, when removing the screws make sure you account for the plastic insulating spacers in the holes as well as a paper insulating gasket on the horn ring side.

Here is a breakdown of the 46-7 wheel.

Thank you so much for the excellent help. I will try to remove the steering wheel tomorrow since that seems to be the only way to get at the turn signal assy below the wheel.
