missing part of horn wiring

68 El Camino. Purchased it with an aftermarket wheel, but original was in bed.

When the original was removed, apparently the PO did not know he could remove the little brass contact and just snipped the black and white wires. The missing contact and little plastic retainer are mia.

Anyone know of a source for those parts? I can splice them in. The spring is still in the horn contact. Just need the brass contact and the plastic retainer.

Re: missing part of horn wiring

Don't know if those little pieces are reproduced, but I couldn't find them.

I made a piece out of a yellow wire butt connector. Cut it in half and crimped two pieces of wire in it. It was a little too wide to fit in the horn contact, so I filed it down leaving a little lip on each side to grab. Installed and connected the two wires to the clipped wires on my horn shroud.

Have you tried the "Help" aisle at your local parts store?

Re: missing part of horn wiring

let me look around tonight. I may have one that you can have if it didn't get tossed in spring cleaning over the years.

Re: missing part of horn wiring

I was not able to locate one, but I did see similar things on line. Speedway, summit and steeringcolumnservices.com all list something that looks close. I think dorman also has a kit that may fit multiple years. it needs to be trimmed to fit.
