68-69 3 spoke wheel horn button assembly

Does anyone have an exploded view pic of how the horn button parts go together for 3 spoke wheel in a 68-69? I'm putting on my 66 and the only pic I gave is for the stock 66 wheel. I believe I gave a mismatch of horn button/contacts/springs, etc but I can't tell for sure.
I'm hoping an exploded view will put this straight in my head.
Thanks,
Dennis

The '69 wheel is a diffefent depth than the '64 through '68 because Chevy redesigned the column for '69. The '69/'70 wheel is shallower that the '67/'68. It will fit and will give you more gut room.

As I recall, InlineTube has a small diagram of the assembly in their online Chevy Cataloge.

Re: 68-69 3 spoke wheel horn button assembly

First mount the hub to the steering wheel with 6 phillips headed stainless steel screws. Be sure to mount the hub to the steering wheel with the hole in the hub at the 10 o'clock position. Then mount the horn contact, which is also the retainer for the center horn cap. The horn contact uses 3 phillips screws. These are not stainless steel. The horn contact has a tab hanging off the back side, which must also be mounted with the tab also at the 10 O'clock position. Then install the horn cap by snapping it into the horn contact.

Thanks, this is what I needed. I still had a mismatch of parts but with a little grinding of the plunger it now works.
Thanks everyone.
