Anyone have any photos of how this looks before the horn button gets pushed on ? Ive got a bunch of new and misc used parts. Not sure if I have the right parts though and theres no videos online showing how these go together.

FWIW, the same parts were used on the 4 spoke sport wheel as far back as 1972 on Chevelle, and the Camaro/Camaro Z28 4 spoke wheel from forever. Chevette/T1000 and mid-80s Cavaliers as well.

Horn contact hack: the small black sleeve that goes over the contact stud and twists to lock into the cancel cam can be hard to find sometimes, but you can cut the pigtail from the "standard" wheel, and make 2 retainers for the sport wheel out of the lock sleeve. I guess GM didn't want to have assembly-line workers have to pay attention when assembling the pigtail, so the sleeve has the lock pin at both ends.

Sorry, I don't have pics, so this might sound like gibbersh :LOL:

I posted at work this afternoon (shhh don't tell anyone) I was going to mention the 4 spoke wheels as well, and as far as the hack...I've done it here with a 4 spoke I had in the 79 Camino.

Also the three spoke steering wheel used in '80s era jeep Cherokees and Wranglers, before they switched to Chrysler steering columns.

So a trip to two yards today and I found this in a Grand Cherokee. Im still missing the plastic piece, spring and plunger and Im not sure how it all goes together. Mikes and Dixie both carry the spring, plunger and plastic piece but do I have the right setup on the coulumn ? Its been so many years I dont remember how to pop the black plastic cover off the end.

Your column is good as is...no further disassembly required. The pin, spring and small plastic retainer fit into the "tower" part of the cancel cam.

Thanks. Im assuming the spring goes in first and the plastic piece locks it in ? Then the pin slides into the plastic piece ?
