Trying to determine if all of the parts are there on my 65 Chevelle for the steering wheel guts. Can't get the horn to work cause just seems some parts are missing. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,;)

For the horn ring type, starting from steering wheel installed. Put on contact ring (big washer), little tabs facing out. Put on plastic spacer, interlocks with tabs. Put on horn ring. Put on plastic thing with 3 bushings. Put in three screws which secure everything to the steering wheel. There are holes in the contact ring and horn ring which have to line up with the screw, should be clear when you do it. Snap in cover with emblem. Also for the horn to work right you may need to adjust the position of the steering wheel with respect to the turn signal housing. The adjustment changes how much the little button which completes the horn circuit sticks out of the steering wheel. This is done by loosening the bolts which clamp the steering column to the dash.

Actually, the correct way to adjust the horn contact is to install the steering column where you want it with the proper gap between the column shroud and the back of the steering wheel, THEN adjust the length of the spring loaded contact which sticks out of the horn contact disc. If you buy a new contact kit (includes a spring, retainer and a new contact plunger) it tells you how to measure and cut it to the proper length.
