53 Buick Solid Spoke Steering, horn components

53 Buick Solid Spoke Steering, horn components help

Anyone had experience with this? There are some missing pieces, that don't seem to be manufactured anymore. I believe I am missing:

1. some kind of spring under the horn cup (attaches to plastic steering wheel housing and pushes up the cup.

2. a strap that goes on top of the horn button piece connected to the wire. It is called a retainer in other horns, and might be a few pieces, a strap with a retainer on each side.

Anyone have a pic on the missing parts or a lead? Have searched and called some.

Any universal kit that will do the trick?

The insides were all wrapped with electrical tape to keep the horn from activating all the time.

Thanks.

Here's the "strap." Still looking for the spring part.

instead of a spring,you can use a section of foam pipe insulation.cut to a length just longer than you think.then if it tends to pop horn cap off,you can shorten it.i have used this on several cars.

I will try this. I'm thinking it must go close to the inside (around the steering wheel nut) and leave the outside edge of the cup for connecting? Appreciate your help.
