Anyone know the correct order of assembly of the parts behind the button. What looks right to me may not be. Just want to make sure.

thanks

Coolie, Inside the horn button there are 4 parts. First,there is a cone shaped cup open on both ends. This goes in first with the small end first. Next is a spring about an inch in dia. and about 11/4 inches tall with a brass plate attached to it. Insert the spring into the button open end first so you see the plate. Next you should have a brass plate with a small hole in the center and three protruding tabs. Place this plate over the spring aligning the tabs with the slots in the button. Next push down on the assy. and snap the retaining ring into the groove around the outside of the button body. That's it! I will add that there are two versions of the 3 pronged lock plate. One has center hole about 5/16 in. in dia. the other has a larger hole about 11/2 in. in diam. The plate with the larger hole uses a plain spring with a wider contact plate that fits the larger hole. The two parts will not interchange with one another. On the column the button retainer plate is secured by the steering wheel nut inside the wheel. The horn wire and contact goes through an 1 5/8 wide brass plate with a 3/8 in. center hole and is fed through the large spring into the column. Hope this helps! Jim
