The black spring plate should be flat. There is no back or front only up and down. The key is not to tighten the screws down too tight. Just enough to hold in place. You don't want to flatten the red rubber ring

I am a member of Classic Camaro of Central Fl.  I guess I started some discussion on the plastic ring. If was part of the deluxe wheel vs. the standard wheel.

Apparently I did not need the plastic backing. The kit came with everything I needed. All improper installation. I took the car over to a friend who runs a restoration shop and he showed me how to put it in. All installed and beeping!
Thank you all again!

Yes I see it behind the black spring plate. Mine did not come with it. I think I have a piece of thin plastic to make out of.
I will let you all know if it works.
THANK YOU!

You may want to also download the 67 chassis service manual.  I think it may show the steering wheel assembly in better detail than the AIM

I have all three books and none of them show the horn contact assembly , cut away, or explosion diagram

Is the ivory plastic insulator ring installed under the steel disc?? I can't tell from that photo.

There is no plastic insulator. Where does it go and what does it look like?

Here are some pics. It seems there should be something in there to keep it from grounding out.
I check the AIM and it does not show the actual switch assembly... Or at least where I can find it.
Thank you all again

Mike
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Horn Button Assembly 67 Camaro on: April 10, 2014, 08:23:19 PM
Hello all, I am trying to assemble the horn button and contacts in my 67 steering wheel.
Once I install everything and put power to it the horn goes off. It seems when I put it together it completes the circuit and beeps.
Does anybody have any diagrams or pictures on how it goes together. Also is there suppose to be any plastic insulators in there somewhere to keep it from making contact until you hit the button? Any help is appreciated. its a regular wheel , not the woodgrain
Thanks
Mike

I have been going to the FBODY Gathering for 4 years this will be my 5th. I was told for years I should not miss this event and I ignored them. One I went I was hooked.
This years Saturday theme night is Tropical Luau. Dress you or your self up in your best Magnum PI Gear. ( You Young Guys Can Google that!)

Don't miss meeting Scott Settlemire (FBODFATHER) he is always available to chat. He will be bringing lots of Toys from the Chevy Toy Box for you to finger up.
This event is HUGE!

Drive it, trailer it, tow it or event don't bring it this year and just be a spectator. But don't miss it.

Yes there will be lots of 5th gens there , however I bring my 67 and we get the respect we deserve. I even got the TAP last year to display my car in the GM display on awards night.
So don't have an attitude  Tongue and get with the party!

I couldn't find anything in my interchange book which has missing pages and torn to pieces. Not to give up I called my buddy and he said these gears were '63 to ? I can't remember. He said they would work in any rear up to a '70 model.  He's an Auto transmission and rear end builder/set up for the drag racers around here so I would  trust his knowledge. Other than that I can't help you. Sorry  Sad

Thank you for trying.
I guess the bottom line is that gears are out of a 8.2 rear end will not work in a 8.5 rear end.
The unit came out of a 67 Nova , it has a 8.2 from what I was told.
Thanks again.

The way I'm reading this the housing is a '72. Correct? If so it won't work.

I found the code for the axle housing on a nova site. I read it as a 72 Detroit  2:73 open.

Its there a way to confirm the part numbers on the ring and pinion? I really wanted to save some money using this unit.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Axle and gears Question on: December 31, 2012, 06:55:51 PM
The Axle on my Camaro is coded as
JB G272 1 The best I can make out is it is a 8.5 out of a 72 GM product.

I have a Ring and Pinion posi unit.

The Pinion gear is coded 383240   F10
The Ring Gear is GM3790629   12  37  6  65
 it has 37 teeth to 12 teeth making it what I believe to be a 3:08
The question is ( of course ) will the Posi ring and pinion unit work in that axle housing.

Any help would be great!
Thanks

Mike

I was told the Ring and Pinion , Posi was out of a 67 Nova. If that helps?
